Is there a reason you want to use PowerShell here?  I am a big fan of WMIC commands.  They are simple and can work in a batch file easily.  If you have the GUID it would be a simple command like this replacing the GUID but leaving the brackets :

wmic product where identifyingnumber={guid} call uninstall /nointeractive

But if you want to install all products that have a similar name (like java might have 5 versions of Java 8 on a machine), you could use a command like this to remove all programs that start with "java 8"

wmic product where "name like 'Java 8%%'" call uninstall /nointeractive

Hope that helps!
