Run a script on Active Directory to uninstall McAfee 8.5i

I have a script to uninstall McAfee 8.5i but because of the big number of computers in our domain so i want to run the script on Active Directory to all computers, so any idea how can i do it?
My second question is that McAfee script sometimes does not uninstall McAfee Framework, so is there any solution for that or is there any other script which can uninstall McAfee completely?

Try the following string, you can run it in group policy or logon script.
<package id="mcafee" name="McAfee VirusScan Enterprise" revision="1" reboot="false" priority="0">
 <check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="McAfee VirusScan Enterprise" />
 <install cmd='%SOFTWARE%\ent80epo\setup REBOOT=R /qb /l*v "c:\netinst\logs\vse80i.log" ' />
 <remove cmd='msiexec /uninstall{5DF3D1BB-894E-4DCD-8275-159AC9829B43} /qb /l*v "c:\netinst\logs\vse80u.log" ' />

how can i run it on logon script?
You say you have a somewhat larger number of client computers. Aren't you using ePolicy Orchestrator then? ePO would provide the best way to uninstall VSE and CMA :)

I am new in the company and i never worked on McAfee, so i do not know how to use ePolicy Orchestrator to uninstall McAfee and install Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0, any information will be appreciated.
