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.
