you will have to remove all traces with ADSI edit. ADSI Edit installs automatically when you install the Microsoft Windows 2000 Resource Kit. You invoke ADSI Edit from Programs, Windows 2000 Support Tools, Tools, ADSI Edit.

Adsi edit should work, but it would be helpful to have some feedback from the asker.
