Cluster Service won't Start

I'm running failover clustering on Windows Server 2008 R2. When removing a cluster I recieved the error - "Event 4620  Unloading the cluster service registry hive during cluster node cleanup failed". Since then I have been unable to start the cluster service or even remove failover clustering from the server. It warns me that I may not be able to create or join a cluster with this machine until I've completed a manual cleanup. For this it tells me to execute the 'clear-clusternode' powershell cmdlet. When trying to run 'clear-clusternode' Powershell returns the error "clear-clusternode is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet". Any ideas on how I either complete the cleanup or remove failover clustering completely?

Anyone know why the clear-clusternode command doesn't work? That seems to be the key to this problem.

Is the command being run as the local administrator?

Could also use the 2003 commands:
CLUSTER [[/CLUSTER:]cluster-name] NODE [node-name] /FORCE

I managed to work round the problem by editing the registry nad then completely removing failover clsutering. I would still like to know why the clear-clusternode isn't working for me. And yes i'm running it as a local admin as well as trying it with a domain admin account.
