Go to Programs and uninstall the TruGrid Sentry

INSTALL AND ACTIVATE THE LATEST SENTRY AGENT VERSION:
Download the latest TruGrid Sentry Agent.

Ensure the server to use for TruGrid Sentry is fully patched with Windows OS updates and has the latest version of .NET Framework is installed.
TruGrid recommends at least two Sentry servers for redundancy and scalability. One will suffice for environments that don't desire redundancy
If the installation of the TruGrid Sentry agent is disrupted, this is generally due to either: a) EXE or directory (c:\program files\trugrid\sentry\) needs to be whitelisted in AV or IDS agent or b) outbound traffic IP address restrictions.
If installation throws Access Denied message, please refer to this article.
If required by TruGrid Customer Care, Sentry installation log is at: %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\TruGrid
