Batch File to Remove Foxit reader

I have created a batch file with the following:
echo off
start "" "C:\Program Files\Foxit Software\Foxit Reader\UnInstall.exe"

But when I run it, I am promted if I want to uninstall it and given a yes or no option

I tried putting in a few things such as /y, y| but nothing I have tried works. Please offer me advice on how to automatically accept the uninstall as Yes so I can put it in a login script to remove it from my XP clients

The uninstall program must support a command line option to suppress a prompt.  You'll need to consult the application's manual and/or the vendor - you can't force something to recognize command line parameters if it wasn't designed to.

Then what would my best option be to uninstall the foxit software off 400+ Windows XP PCs without visiting each one?

How did you install it?  (I have not used foxit software and am not sure what exactly it is).  Usually, when people deploy software, they also have a plan to remove it when necessary... who installed it and how?

It was installed in the desktop image by an old administrator.
Foxit reader is an alternative to Adobe reader and I am going to remove it and install Adobe reader on all clients

You might not have a choice... You'll have to look into the software program in question and determine if there is a way to uninstall it.  Otherwise, if you're equipped for imaging, it may be easy enough to redeploy an image without it.
