To remove an application that has been installed by a software installation package,
right-click the software package in the Group Policy Object and select All
Tasks/Remove. There are two selections: Forced Removal which causes "immediate
uninstall" or Optional Removal which allows users to continue using but no
installations are provided.
Note: An "immediate removal" does not trigger uninstallation until the user logs off
and back on for an application deployed to Users. For an application Assigned to
Computers, the machine must be rebooted to uninstall the application.

Another option is to setup the uninstall as part of the original installation package
by selecting to Uninstall the application if the user/computer falls out of the scope of
management. If the user/computer is moved from the original location where the
Group Policy Object with the installation package is deployed, the application will
uninstall at the next logon/reboot. This provides a means of removing software
specific for an OU when the user/computer no longer belongs to that OU. For
instance: a user's account belongs to an Accounting OU and has special Accounting
software deployed. When that user's account is moved to the Marketing OU, the
Accounting software will be removed. This can prevent potential licensing problems.
