Intelligent Messaging Filter

My intelligent messaging filter quit working. When I selected the intelligent messaging filter tab I got the error "The operation completed successfully" Facility:Win32 ID no:C0070000 Microsoft Intelligent Messaging Filter. I was told that I needed to reinstall SP2 for exchange. When I tried to run the SP2 install I got a message that I needed to uninstall IMF. I uninstalled the IMF and rebooted the server and when I run the install of SP2 I get the same message that I need to uninstall the IMF. The system thinks it is still installed. Did I miss something?

The IMF was integrated into SP2 as a newer version you therefore need to ensure the previous version is removed.

SP2 was installled sometime last year and IMF1 was uninstalled before that install.

Please follow the following article to manually uninstall IMF before re-attempting to install SP2 again.
Make sure you stop all the relevant services and if you get any problems, stop all the Exchange services first.

any errors in event viewer?
Check add/remove programs for IMF1 (just for case it was not removed completely).
