Cannot uninstall SEP

I installed SEP on SBS 2003. It caused many problems and needed to be removed. But it seems to be nearly impossible to get rid of. I have been working through Symantec tech support. Every tech tells me a different story, but the product still is causing problems. I uninstalled via Add/Remove Programs. I uninstalled using a tool Symantec sent me. I uninstalled using another tool they sent. But, there are still peices on SEP that are causing prolems. Although each attempt at an uninstall reduces the problems, I am still having trouble with the VPN. It does not work.
Symantec also sent me instructions on a manual removal of SEP. But this is about 700 steps and would take 10 hours. There is also a very high risk with this becauae I tend to get blurry eyed and get too many thumbs after a while.
Does anybody know how to uninstall SEP from SBS 2003?
