although I could imagine that Norbert will not like my input, I will 
give it a try.
 From these questions I conclude, that you do not yet have a good basic 
knowledge about the involved structure and it is - in my humble opinion 
- quite sure that the created benefit will be negligible. But of course 
you are free to try it and you will certainly find some person(s) here 
who will be eager to tell you everything you need to know.
My recommendation would be to search for some significantly easier task.
Good luck

Also, will the uninstaller be an `exe` or `msi` file as it supports only that(If not I should need to call manually.). If you could help me out there I may do the rest of the works. I will do the rest very easily. If needed for any files we can use  for any bath script. (I don't think it is necessary though).
