You can use Group Policy to remove the software, you will just need the installation media so you can execue the correct files on the local machine to do so.

If software is just one, you can get the uninstall link from menu in one machine and put it on logon script.
just put an if to verify if main exe still there. something like this:

IF EXIST    %PROGRAMFILES%\folder\main-program.exe     command-to-uninstall

I DISAGREE: The author do not state he/she has support for GPO (AD + Windows).
This solution will not work if it's a SAMBA domain.

Even my solution requires more hard/manual work, it would work 100% of regular software because it's the method used to uninstall one instance of software.
