May be as simple as adding a batch script that runs under the Computer context or a service account and adding something like the following

@echo off

if exist "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\msseces.exe" ^
"%SystemRoot%\System32\MsiExec.exe" /X{774088D4-0777-4D78-904D-E435B318F5D2} /qb /quiet

:EOF


where the ID ({774088D4...})used can be found in the registry. you may have a different version installed that would have a different ID, verify by looking at HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall


not very elegant, but effective!
