How to remove WDS through logon script

On our network, like many others, Windows Desktop Search 3.01 was installed on all XP computers even though I never approved it in WSUS.

To remove it through logon script add this line to the script:

%windir%\$NtUninstallKB917013$\spuninst\spuninst.exe /quiet /norestart (on one line)

Credits to Kurt Falde from the WSUS newsgroup for the tip.
