Like most other businesses, we have had the issue with users installing Google Earth on their work machines as they dont need local admin to install it.
I’ve been looking into various ways of removing Google Earth using SCCM but most failed. I’ve found the simplest way to do this is to run the following command and advertise it to all machines with Google Earth installed (or you can obviously create a collection with all machines in it with Google Earth installed).
msiexec /uninstall "%temp%._msige61Google Earth.msi" /qn
This takes the Google Earth.msi file that is put into the local users %temp% directory and uninstalls it – this ensures that the correct version of the MSI is used.
You can then create a package or task sequence in SCCM to push this out to users or just add it as an uninstall function within an application.
