Hi,
No, the Child Domain is not active and not available. When I login Domain, I stil can see the ChildDomain option, I want to totally remove the Child Domain from my Main Domain Controller.
Can I just follow this guide http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q230306 ??
Please advise.

Please ignore above error message, my last error message as below:

DsRemoveDsDomainW error 0x2162(The requested domain could not be deleted because
 there exist domain controllers that still host this domain.)

it means exactly what it says. you still have DC's that host that domain....if you are 100% certain you dont, then you will need to cleanup with a metadata cleanup
