Software Deployment Question

Removing Firefox from a large amount of Servers

01/08/2016 1501 views

I would like to make sure we don't have Firefox installed on any of our servers. For that I have created a Compliance Rule in SCCM 2012 that detects the presence of Firefox, but now I don't find any where on how to launch the Helper.exe /S command once Firefox has been detected. 
I would need to have this rule run every week, so that we make sure we don't have Firefox installed. 

Can anyone suggest how this can be done?

Humm, its been ages since I've used SCCM. But I think what you need to do is create a Dynamic Collection, based of the detection of Firefox. Once you have a nice dynamic collection, you can run a package or application against the collection. You must need to put some smarts into the uninstall (ie do it via a script) as sometimes the FF may have already been uninstall buy the dynamic collection hasn't been updated. The smarts will return nice errors codes that you can handle with SCCM.
