Below is one more application remover for Sophos, this from Sun Belt Software who have created Viper and GFI.

Source:

As per the link above it could uninstall the following:
Agent version 9.x. Also removes the following, if installed: Sophos AutoUpdate agent, Sophos Remote Control agent, Sophos Firewall agent, Sophos NAC agent.

I hope that would help
