Can't recreate Outlook Anywhere setup after deleting RPC in IIS7

I was having issues with Outlook Anywhere not working, so I decided to run the script again to recreate the app in IIS7.  I am running Exchange 2007 in Server 2008 (64bit) with IIS 7.  What I did was run Enable-OutlookAnywhere with the proper details and it gave me the error:

Enable-OutlookAnywhere : The virtual directory 'Rpc' already exists under 'servername/Default Web Site'.
Parameter name: VirtualDirectoryName
At line:1 char:23
+ Enable-OutlookAnywhere  <<<< -Server:servername -ExternalHostName:mail.website.com

So I probably made a mistake and simply deleted RPC from IIS7 but it still says it already exists.

How do I completely remove this virtual directory?

Resolved this.  I simply removed RPC over HTTP as a feature and it worked.  Hurray!

Here is the right way of reinstalling RPC for an SBS 2008 server.
The key is the order and a registry key that you jave to setup before installing RPC over HTTP
