we have few servers which have patchlink agent installed version 7.0.05 which we used to patch the servers in our environment. Now as we have moved to new WSUS patching solution in environment, we are in process of un-installing these agents from the servers.


The issue starts here > 
1)We have few servers in which the patch link agent is not getting uninstalled, it prompts for uninstall password. we have tried using the uninstall password assigned for that server in the patchlink console .
2) For some servers the uninstallation file is missing. we have tried removing forcefully using windows cleanup utility. but in that case still patch link agent will be present in control panel .

we cannot contact Patchlink as the license for that software has expired.

Could any one suggest any way or tool which can help removing the patchlink from the servers ?
