Stubborn Silverlight won't Uninstall - My Fix

So I had some PC's that just refused to remove Microsoft Silverlight.  Every time I ran the Uninstall Microsoft Silverlight it would fail, with a generic 1603 error.  I modified the script and added a few other uninstall notes, and it worked liked a charm so I wanted to share the additions in case anyone else had similar issues with Stubborn Silverlight.  Below is what I added to the package from the Deploy Library.  It completely removes everything related to Silverlight.  

MsiExec.exe /qn /norestart /X{89F4137D-6C26-4A84-BDB8-2E5A4BB71E00}
reg delete HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Silverlight /f
