How to uninstall/remove AVG 7.5 from 200 Windows AD Envioroment PCs?

What is the best method to uninstall  AVG 7.5 from 200 Windows XP PC's in an Active Directory Environment.  THE AVG Admin tool is only used to deploy from what I can see.  Is there a script command to uninstall Programs in AD?

I finally got an offical response from AVG.  Thanks for the insight Mighty but below will be the exact solution


Please proceed as follows in order to uninstall AVG from a client
workstation remotely via AVGADMIN 7.5:

1. Open AVGADMIN 7.5
2. Service -> Install AVG 7 onto stations (advanced)
3. Switch to the components tab and mark the option "Install or
uninstall AVG components"
4. Now, please mark "AVG for Windows" with "x" (you beed to click
several time on the square to mark it with "x" not with "v")
5. Please go to the "Network" tab and select the PC(s) which you want
to remove AVG from
6. Click on the button "Install AVG"

Hi cybersharks1, is this uninstall process using AVGAdmin provided by Grisoft actually working for you?  I am trying to perform the same operation but AVG is not actually getting uninstalled on any workstations when I use this method.  Thanks - like to see a positive or I am going to give up and go manual.

Well we are now contacting AVG again because when you click to Uninstall components nothing shows up as the Windows AVG for us.  So cannot confirm this working.  I will wait for there response and reply.

Thanks cybersharks1.  I have found that only certain components are getting uninstalled when I use this method like the Resident Shield and perhaps a couple of others but not the entire piece of software.  As a note for others, I have been able to use a c:\program files\grisoft\avg7\setup.exe /uninstall method on each workstation but this requires user intervention - /hide does not work for uninstall.  I also tried generating the .ini file in the S-Tool and then used the /REMOVEFEATURE switch to try to remove the entire program but receive the message "This method of uninstall is not supported."  I think I am going manual.  Thanks again.

Response from AVG:

Please accept our apologies for the misunderstanding. We would like to inform you that unfortunately AVG 7.5 can not be uninstalled remotely using the AVG Admin.
Please note that this option is available in AVG 8.5.
However we would like to inform you that detailed instructions how to migrate AVG Admin 7.5 to AVG Remote Administration 8.5 are available in the FAQ section on our webpage:
