Uninistalling Silently and Forefully

Made vbs to uninstall act v6 from my computer.  The vbs works but I have to click next and Yes to all.  I need help on making it by pass that and automatically uninstall everything with out prompting me so i can push it out through AD as a log on script.

All the computers are XP and when i go to start > all programs> act > uninstaller and Rclick look at the properties this is the target of the unsinstaller:
C:\WINDOWS\IsUnInstAct.exe -f"C:\Program Files\ACT\Uninst6.isu" -c"C:\Program Files\ACT\UNINSTAL.DLL"

 

 Can anyone help me or lead me in the right direction to uninstalling this product without going to every users desk..

Set WshShell = Nothing
Set oReg = Nothing

const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002
strComputer = "."
Set oReg = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" &_
         strComputer & "\root\defaultSmiley FrustratedtdRegProv")
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

' Uninstall first application...
strKeyPath = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\ACT!"
strValueName = "UninstallString"
oReg.GetStringValue HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE,strKeyPath,strValueName,strUninstallFullPath
If IsNull(strUninstallFullPath) Then
 ' wscript.echo "Uninstall path for app1 is null"
Else

WshShell.Run strUninstallFullPath,8,true

Re: Uninstalling Silently and Forefully

Thanks but I found the line I was looking for and just created a batch file to uninstall and delete all files silently and forcefully.  Here the code if anyone needs it.

 

 

 

C:\WINDOWS\IsUnInstAct.exe -f"C:\Program Files\ACT\Uninst6.isu" -c"C:\Program Files\ACT\UNINSTAL.DLL" -a -x
