McAfee VSE is in an unstable state. On-acess scan and Acess Protection are disabled

Last Modified: 2016-03-19
We have 400 Windows server 2003 machines within a container in ePO. The policy is set so that Acess protection is enabled as well as on-access scan.  We found that the servers when you do a remote desktop into them on-acess scan and access protection are disabled. When we try to enable them it would not allow us to. We've come to the conclusion that VSE  is in a broken state. We cannot do anything from EPO to administer it and we are having a bunch of error message when trying to uninstall it locally from the machine.  We've contacted McAfee support and they mentioned that we need to uninstall and reinstall and gave us a ripper tool to do so. The only problem is we would have to manually re-install McAfee for 400 machines. Is there a simpler  process to resolve this from an EPO standpoint?
