Uninstall a program using Patch Manager Computer Explorer

If you need to uninstall a program from a managed computer, you can use Computer Explorer.

This tool allows you to:

  • View information and execute tasks on remote computers directly from the Patch Manager Console

  4. Click the Installed Software tab.
  5. In the list, select the program you want to uninstall.
  6. In the toolbar, click Uninstall Software.
  7. In the Uninstall Software window, click Uninstall.
  8. In the Task Options Wizard, add the computers you want to target with the uninstall task, and then click Next.

  9. In the Scheduling and Notification Options screen, specify any scheduling or notification options, and then click Finish.
