From an email I received when I asked about uninstall from the command line.

How do I log the uninstall if required?
At the end of the command line use the following:
/L*v C:\pathto\sophos_uninstall.log

Example:
MsiExec.exe /X {15C418EB-7675-42BE-B2B3-281952DA014D} /qn /L*v C:\Sophos_SAU_Uninstall.log

How to I manually remove any remnant services?
Note: A reinstall and then uninstall should be attempted first.
