If you buy a man a fish... if you teach him to fish...

since I don't know it by heart, here's how you should go about looking for it:

1) open regedit
2) go to HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
3) find the subkey where the DisplayName says Symantec Whatchamacallit...
4) look for the UninstallString value

To uninstall the product we can use the msiexec /x <Productcode>. But I need to pass the account name and password through command line. Anybody know the parameters?

You can't pass alternative credentials to MSIExec. Either log in with an appropriately-privileged account or open the command prompt with that account, using 'Run As...'

There was same issue with Symantec EndpointProtection 11.0.4202.75 and I found a custom action responsible for asking the password during uninstall. Search for "CheckUninstallPasssword..." in CustomAction table, if found disable that custom action given some condition which is always false.
