Remove the third party software through GPO


  • Hi

    I'm trying to remove a software, that installed through GPO from every client machine. 

    Right click the software from GPO and select All Tasks -> Remove

    Select the radio button Immediately uninstall the software from users and computers and click OK

    In my client machine Run the command "gpupdate \force" in command prompt and restart my computer. but when i check in Add or remove programs the software is still there.

    Why it not removing from my client machine?

    I need to run "gpupdate \force" after every action in all computer to make the changes..? like update my software with new version

  • Most of the software have an uninstall string.where we can use to uninstall the software using command line.

    you can use below mentioned free tool to find uninstall string from the registry.

    once you find the uninstall string you can use logon or startup script to uninstall software
