How do I Uninstall Sophos endpoint Security

I have had a crash and need to uninstall the Antivirus Software

I cannot find an Uninstaller Tool anywhere....Please Help !!!!!

When I attempt to uninstall I get this message:

error 1721. There is a problem with the Windows Installer package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run.  Contact your support personnel or package Vendor.

Note: already ran:
MSIEXEC /UNREGISTER
MSIEXEC /REGSERVER

Already tried that and was able to uninstall everything except the:

Sophos Anti-Virus (SAV)

This part is stuck and will not Uninstall...that is why I am looking for an Uninstaller Tool

Pls see the error handling suggested, can look at the Sophos Anti Virus Install log found in the location C:\Windows\Temp for the file stated causing the error. The failure is likely due to the missing file and need to have it before retrying to complete uninstall attempts.

Otherwise, to reinstall before uninstall, see againhttps://community.sophos.com/kb/pl-pl/118140
