There is an old discussion on this topic, but the solutions there do not help solve my issue.

 

Almost every morning Teams will have quit itself and when I re-open it an old version has been re-installed. I have no idea where it is coming from, but I have constantly removed all references to Teams that I can find.

 

The version it keeps reverting to is 1.2.00.6957. I have installed both 1.3.00.33671 and 1.4.00.4971 and the reversion still happens.

 

I ran `sudo find / -type d -name "*Teams*" -print 2>/dev/null` from Terminal to search for all references to MS Teams on my machine and ended up removing the following directories:

 

rm -rf /Applications/Microsoft Teams.app
rm -rf ~/Library/Application Support/Teams
rm -rf ~/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Teams 
rm -rf /private/var/folders/qn/8x0qv4616tx8p28q08rl2jhm0000gp/T/Teams
rm -rf /private/var/folders/qn/8x0qv4616tx8p28q08rl2jhm0000gp/T/Microsoft\ Teams\ Helper
rm -rf /private/var/folders/qn/8x0qv4616tx8p28q08rl2jhm0000gp/T/Microsoft\ Teams\ Helper\ \(Renderer\) 
rm -rf ~/Library/Logs/Microsoft Teams
rm -rf ~/Library/Logs/Microsoft Teams\ Helper
rm -rf ~/Library/Logs/Microsoft Teams\ Helper\ \(Renderer\)

 

The next morning it had reverted back to version 1.2.00.6957. This pattern continues every day and every day I have to re-install MS Teams. At this point it seems to be acting like spyware. Please help.
