I mean I when I select MSE from the program list I get the error message:
"The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable.
Click OK to try again or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package "epp.msi" in the box below.
I searched the whole computer for the file epp.msi and it reported no such file is there.
MSE keeps refusing to update and gives an error message. I tried removing any malware using MSE and other programs, but it didn't help. So I'd like to install a different anti-malware program like Avast. But MSE can't be uninstalled in the usual manner of going thru ConTrol Panel and Uninstall. The smucks at Microsoft made it very hard to uninstall. I've searched extensively, but all the manual uninstall programs are complicated and the one I tried didn't work. Is there a good uninstall procedure? If not, can I just add Avast without removing MSE? I've read that you shouldn't have more than one antivirus program on your computer. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

What do you mean you can't uninstall from the 'add/remove programs list in control panel? What happens when you do, i.e. what error(s) do you get? Not recommended that you install Avast with MSE still on the system as they will likely conflict with each other. Start your system in safe mode and see if you can uninstall MSE then.
