Thanks for all the input. I tried the various ways and all ended up with errors pointing to a missing file, without which uninstall was stopped.
My efforts were interrupted by a bit of real life reality requiring a four hour visit to the local emergency room where something called a "synchronized cardio-version", one of those shock things with the paddles was administered to kick my ticker back into rhythm.

Once back home I took a shot at tketola's suggestion; deleted all the MSE files, and ran CCleaner.... and then installed Avast. I had Avast before and didn't care for its constant chest beating about having done this and that, but it's better than having these recurring unfathomable problems with Uncle Billy.

Again, thanks for all the responses and outreach of helping hands.
