Google Desktop Search

Does anyone have a script or package that they could share that does nothing more than uninstall Google Desktop Search from a PC that can be deployed from a push or login script?

I spent a number of days trying to find a way of automatically removing this product as well as the yahoo variant and here is what I determined.

If you run the uninstall using same credentials as the person who installed it it will be removed. The problem is that most things run as the local system account or some administrator account, which gives you back an error when trying to remove it that this can only be run under the same user credentials. About the best you could hope to do is to delete the files and registry entries via script so that it would be disabled.

You might be able to package something and have the 'User' execute is by dropping the command into


then it would be running with the current users credentials.

Dim WshShell

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

wshshell.regread "HKEY_LOCAL_MICHINE\Software\Microsoft\windows\currentversion\uninstall\uninstall # here"

If ("uninstall #")exists Then
wshshell.Run("wscript.exe " & "google\Install.wsf uninstall", 0, True)


you can Put a constants and check If exist and msiexec /i the product key
