Automox Worklet: Uninstall Applications on Windows Devices

Automox Worklet overview: Uninstall applications on Windows devices

IT administrators often find themselves having to uninstall certain software from the Windows devices that they manage. This can be a very daunting, time-consuming task, especially if you are managing thousands of devices that span across several different subnets in different geographic regions. If zero-day vulnerabilities are found to be exploited through one of these applications, the speed at which they are uninstalled could mean the difference between you being exploited by an attacker or not.

To create this Worklet, use the evaluation and remediation code scripts located here in the original posting on the Automox community. The evaluation code checks for the presence of the specified application on the devices. The remediation code uninstalls the matching application from the devices identified.

You can assign this Worklet to any number of your Windows groups and execute the policy. You can also set the Worklet to run on a schedule like any other Worklet.

Tips for creating an Automox Worklet
