    Hey guys,

    I need soem help here. I was playing around with WSUS and made a few mistakes. I wanted to uninstall and reinstall everything.

    I uninstalled WSUS and the setup finished. I didnt look closely though but I assumed it was successful b/c it was gone from add/remove programs. I then removed the internal database and net framework bc I wanted to do a fresh install of everything.

    I then realized that WSUS was not successfully removed. When I tried to remove it from the setup.exe file in program files/update service/.., I get the following error;

    Setup not completed

    The windows server update service 3.0 was not removed successfully because an error occured.

    Does anyone have any idea on how I can remove and reinstall this? I also cannot install it over itself b/c the install executable only gives the option to uninstall, which fails.

    I can’t think of anything else except manually removing all of the files and entries in regedit, which is not what I want to do b/c it might crash the entire system

    ANy help would be appreciated
