    If you deployed it through GPO so long as the box is ticked that said remove from computers when falls out of scope (or something along them lines) it will remove it when they next boot up and check for GPO changes

    If it wasn't, you could create a startup script along the lines of:

    Code:
    %systemroot%\system32\msiexec.exe /x $pathtofrontpageinstallfiles%\fpage.msi /qn
    It wouldn't hurt to put a WMI filter on there to look for Frontpage to make sure it doesn't get run on machines without it. Something along the lines of
    Code:
    select * from Win32_SoftwareFeature where ProductName LIKE "%Frontpage 2003%"
    should do it.

    Thanks for the replies,

    Unfortunately it was installed from as part of a suite so there is no msi file for FrontPage alone, there is only the Proplus.msi, how do you stipulate that only FP gets uninstalled????

    In that case, you need the custom maintenance wizard for your version of Office. It should be in the Office Resource Kit for it. I'll attach the Office 2003 version to this post.

    Run the custom maintenance wizard and tell it to generate a CMW file. It runs a wizard which is similar to the Office installation wizard, tell it to remove the feature that you don't want. Once you're finished, save the CMW file somewhere.

    Then run the Custom Maintenance Wizard with the following command line:

    Code:
    %location of wizard%\maintwiz.exe /c "%location of .cmw file\$filename$.cmw" /qb-
    Bung that in a startup script and you're good to go.
