script for an unattended install of Windows Defender

I would like to create a batch file that will remove Windows defender on all Workstations in the domain. Once Defender is removed, I would like to assign Defender (newer version) to all Workstations. I would like to accomplish this using a GPO. I've downloaded adrmpro2.exe and ran it on a workstation. Then I've created a batch file:
msiexec.exe /x {B2D7CE29-614A-4ACC-8BFE-009EB3A244C9} REMOVE="ALL" /qn . This did not work.
The B2D7CE29-614A-4ACC-8BFE-009EB3A244C9 is the GUID of a particular computer. There are 100 computers here and I would hate to run the exe on every one of them.
My question is how can i crete a batch file that will remove Windows defender on all computers? Is there an example someone can post? I would need in the script an unattended install as I would have to activate the product on every machine. We have a volume license.

Please help!
