I have deployed Windows Defender via GPO a few months back. I now need to have the program uninstalled from the machines it was deployed to. I see an option to uninstall the program when the PC falls out of the scope of managment, but thats not exactly what I want. Any suggestions?

When you remove the package from the GPO, it gives you the option to remove the software from the machines. Select 'Immediately remove the software from users and computers'.
