Exchange 2010 Public Folder Removal

Hi, due to some issue with our pilot Exchange 2010 we are uninstalling all the 2010 servers. I managed to uninstall al but except last server with Hub Trans and MB roles.

I have one Public Folder "PF" which cannot be mounted due to MS Exchange Replication Service cannot run on the server.
When I tried to manually start the service, I get an message that "MS REplication Service on SERVER started and then stopped. Some Services stop automatically if they are not is use by other services or programs"

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Remove-PublicFolder -Identity "\PF" -Server "SERVER"
You can't perform this operation because public folder database 'PF' isn't mounted. Please mount it and try again.
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [], TaskInvalidOperationException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : 7C686B7C

How should I forcefully remove the Public Folder "PF"


Many thanks
