Unistalling Chrome via GPO

I’d like to uninstall Google Chrome on a network with a few hundred computers via GPO (however, it was installed partially via GPO/manually/by the user). On most devices it is not listed by WMIC, which seems to eliminate that method. Is there a startup script I could use that uninstalls any version of Google Chrome that could be deployed via GPO?

    Hi,

    Yes, it is possible to uninstall the Chrome via GPO. Such as a startup script or a task schedule.
    Following link for your reference:

    I would suggest you test the script before deploy it through GPO.
