Uninstall Google toolbar

patb071
I am looking for a way to automate the uninstall of google toolbar and a few other programs. We have Altiris Console available but i can not find any useful information on their site. We are currently running XP on a 2003 domain. Any help without installing a program would be greatly appreciated.

How would i create\run a vbs script? Looks like it would become very useful once i start using it.

---TK---

then place the code in the .txt. Change the .txt to .vsb, and double click it... or you can have a .bat file call it to start the script...

Is that what you mean?

I tried renaming it as a .bat but it didn't work here is what i have

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

Set colSoftware = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
("Select * from Win32_Product Where Name = 'Google Toolbar for internet explorer'")

For Each objSoftware in colSoftware
objSoftware.Uninstall()

Thank You This one helped

Option Explicit:On Error Resume Next
Dim WshShell,a,i:i=0:Set WshShell=WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
a=WshShell.RegRead("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{2318C2B1-4965-11d4-9B18-009027A5CD4F}\UninstallString")
If a<>"" Then WshShell.Run(a&" /S"),1,True:i=1
WshShell=Nothing:Wscript.Quit(i)

Now i just have to figure out how to create a vbs Script on my own.

Guy Thomas has a collection of useful scripts and he goes to great lengths to explain what is happening.
