I am in a E2003 upgrade process where I have to get rid of my E2k Enterprise Front End Server. I uninstalled Exchange 2000, and received errors when trying to uninstall The Instant Messaging and Chat Components. I receive the message "A problem has been encountered in the MS Exchange Instant Messaging Service Setup Component. Canceling Setup" I have rebooted and tried again. I also stopped all the IIS Admin and Exchange services, to no avail.. I have the Microsoft Article on manually removing exchange, but want to us that as a last resort...
