Spybot removal script

By rricks ·
Our company had an ghost image with Spybot on it. It has been deployed accidentlly thoughout the company. Does any know of a script that can be used in GPO to remove the program?

why can't you do a normal un-install?

If it's a piece of malware, one of the many with a name deceptively similar to SS&D, you'll need to use a legit security application, such as the real SS&D, to remove it.

Yes You Can

I would do like this, have a bat file uninstall the software once the machine starts up, you can uninstall a program from the command line, see below.

Link will also help

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Currentversion\Uninstall\[name of
application]\UninstallString

If you see QuietUninstalString, that would be the one I'd try first, but not
all applications have a QuietUninstallString
