MS fax service corrupt

HI, I have a site which have partially unistalled ms fax from their SBS2003 serverby mistake, it now appears it hasnt completely worked. I have discovered that after a visit to site I have tried to reinstall it, but it wont work. i therefore cant uninstall it either, I was wondering if anyone knew of a way i could edit the registry to comletely remove ms fax so i can reinstall it sucessfully. hope you all understand that. regards, George,

Thanks for the prompt reply,
the above fix has partially fixed it, I have performed a reinstall of the fax software via (add remove progs) without any problem, there is however an issue with the client machines (xp) when they open up the fax console and click the icon for new fax, nothing happens !  i have since unistalled the fax software via add remove progs, from the server various times,I have also unistalled the shared fax client from the client workstations, and added it again via computer management assign new applications to client computers. both have no effect. Hope the description is clear.
