Sorry if this has been discussed. I searched but could not find any answers

I am trying to create a script to remove yahoo toolbar from all PCs.

The command line to remove it is:
rundll32.exe C:\PROGRA~1\Yahoo!\COMPAN~1\Installs\cpn\YCOMP5~1.DLL,DllCommand ui

The problem is that it prompts me to confirm that I want to remove it
with Y/N.

Anyone know how I can make it transparent to the user.

Thanks,
Bob

Why would you want to make in transparent? It's generally a good idea to let the user know what is going on... Programs that uninstall things without the user's knowledge are generally called malware...

Want to make it transparent because the users at the office should have not installed the software. Need to remove it and lock down the PC's security

Your script only unregisters the dll... Wouldn't you need for the program to be uninstalled and the whole folder to be deleted?
