Select Software installation and right-click on the software package that you are interested in removing.
Select "All Tasks" and then "Remove". When prompted for the removal method select "Immediately uninstall the software from users and computers" (default).

Say "OK" and you will now see that the software package is removed from the listing. At the next reboot this package will be removed from all of the machines in your containers.

the Windows Group Policy Object editor (use either the Group Policy

3. Click the Software installation container that contains the package.
4. In the right pane of the Group Policy window, right-click the
