I am not sure if this is the correct forum so move if needed.

 

When I try to uninstall MSE I get an error saying, " Can't find the nessary files to complete installation. Etc......."  "A second pop up then has the usual "May not have permissions" error. Sec. Center says MSE is running and updated. I can access it with start menu and taskbar to disable. I also seemed to have lost IE as well. I just have a generic icon where the normal one was. When clicked it gives the " Do you want to delete this shrtcut" error.  Any idea what would have caused this?  Oh yeah,,,  I ran an elevated sfc /scannow and some repairs were done succesfully. Not sure what repairs were done, and to be clear,,...I  had the problem before and after the sfc /scn  was run. Thanks

All antivirus programs have uninstall tool that need to be run to remove them. You can find the MSE tool at this link.
