How do I uninstall Trend Micro Office Scan Agent from client computers remotely?

I have been experimenting with PDQ Deploy and it is a great tool for software distribution. The problem I am running into is trying to write uninstall commands in CMD or PowerShell to uninstall Trend Micro, or any .exe file. I have read many KB articles on Trend's site to change parameters within the autopcc.ini file settings the "Uninstall" from 0 to 1, etc., nothing has been working and the package in PDQ has been failing each time. My question is how would I go about creating a .bat file, powershell command line, .exe uninstall command line, etc, whatever will work to uninstall Trend Micro. According to PDQ Inventory, the uninstall command isĀ "C:\Program Files (x86)\Trend Micro\OfficeScan Client\ntrmv.exe".

I have old notes on removing Trend and the command I used was:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Trend Micro\OfficeScan Client\ntrmv.exe" -331

Which apparently is a silent uninstall, but this was years ago so I don't know if it would still work.
