Cannot decommision exchange 2003 after transitioning to exchange 2007

The first time I attempted to uninstall exchange 2003, an error message pops up on the Exchange Messaging and Collaboration Services:

The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
The second time:
The service cannot accept control messages at this time.
The third time:
There is no such object on the server.

There are still components on the server.  Do I just need to manually remove the data now from active directory since it does not look im going to get a clean uninstall?  If so, what are the appropriate steps?

Hello,

If you are unable to uninstall Exchange using the setup files, you can manually remove it by following the instructions in this article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/833396
