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.

1. Open the group policy object which contains the deployed package in
the Windows Group Policy Object editor (use either the Group Policy
Management or Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in).
2. Expand the Software Settings container that contains the Software
installation item with which you deployed the package.
3. Click the Software installation container that contains the package.
4. In the right pane of the Group Policy window, right-click the
program, point to All Tasks, and then click Remove.
5. Click Immediately uninstall the software from users and
computers, and then click OK.
6. Close the Windows Group Policy Object editor.
