The VSE installer can remove many rival products when it installs VSE, I've used this to clear out symantec enterprise AV v8.x and 10.x with about 98% success rate.
The full list for vse 8.7 is here:

Just to add - VSE is constantly updated to handle new versions, so if you come across something that it can't uninstall please open a case with Support so we can get it fixed.
Thank you guys - that helps me alot!!!

Well, i think i have to open a case - but so litte time at the moment...
Had time yesterday to do some testing on a vmware XP which was already running Kaspersky Anti-Virus 6 (126.96.36.1997), which should be removed by ePO.
See the screenshot with the results - they are now both working together or against each other....

Its would be removed by vse not the epo/mcafee agent
you can still run the epo/mcafee agent on a machine with other AV software on.
Has this machine got a functional install of VSE running aswell as KAV?
I havn't had a case yet where I got both running at the same time, the VSE installer just fails to install when it cant remove a prior software package. I guess it can happen though.
Thats unfortunate, at least KAV has a good uninstaller built into the managment tools they provide.
