CEICW - "Class Not Registered" Error

I have an SBS 2003 Standard Edition SP2 machine.  I am trying to run CEICW to resolve DHCP and DNS issues.  But, when I click on the "Connect to the Internet" link in Server management, I get a simple error message that says, "Class Not Registered" with an options to hit Okay and no errors found in the Event Viewer.
My DHCP and DNS issues were brought on by the improper removal of a Server 2003 machine at a remote site (same domain, separate subnet - functioned as DC and also had NTFS running).  That machine died and it was decided that it was no longer needed.  And, once the proper settings are achieved on the two Adtran routers that connect that subnet to the primary subnet (where the SBS 2003 machine is located) I'm sure it won't be missed.  
Unfortunately, "remove serve"r in the Server Management screen was not used.  It was removed a piece at a time from DHCP and DNS when computeres on the remote site stopped responding because their DHCP leases had expired and couldn't be renewed.
My underlying problem is DHCP and DNS not working properly and all of my reading says the next logical step is to run CEICW, but I can't.
Any ideas?

ok , try this :
From a command prompt:

CD C:\Program files\Microsoft Windows Small Business
Server\Networking\ICW
Regsvr32 wizcert.dll
Regsvr32 wizemail.dll
Regsvr32 wizinet.dll
Regsvr32 wizproxy.dll
Regsvr32 wizrfire.dll

CD C:\Program files\Microsoft Windows Small Business
Server\Networking\RRASWiz
Regsvr32 wizrras.dll

Then try CEICW again.

Can I ask what this is going to do and what risks I am subject to?  Remember, my entire network is counting on this box.  I'm open 7 days a week so I can't afford a lot of down time.

why you decided to use CEICW ?
can you explain DNS and DHCP problems you have ? again just explain simply. instead of wasting time trying to solve secondary problem like CEICW.

Addresses assigned by DHCP are not showing up in DNS.  Everything I have read says that the best solution is to use the wizard.  With SBS, when you try to fix things directly, it never seems to work out right.  The wizards handle all of the related details and make everything work properly together.  My current problem was caused because I didn't use the Server Management to remove the second server.  I went into DHCP and DNS to remove it.  It hasn't worked right since then.

If DCHP role was removed, then I would add the DHCP role back. If this is temporary, the objective is to restore the missing function, not fix the SBS for long term operation.

After cleaning seize domain using this article:

The long term goal is to have DHCP and DNS functioning properly, as it did before the second server problems.  And, to have DHCP supplied to the remote subnet too.  However, I have to get the DHCP relay to work on the routers, but, without DHCP working properly, there is no point - yet.  That comes later.
I will review the two KB listed above tomorrow.  I believe I have already done the first one, but will review it more closely.  I have to call it a day for now.

My question was really to get into CEICW.  Running all the DLL files did the trick.  Unfortunately, running CEICW didn't seem to make any changes to the DHCP/DNS issues.  I have previously done the fix in support.microsoft.com/kb/216498 and the second one didn't really seem to apply to my situation, or at least I didn't feel comfortable doing the items listed in it.  It contained issues beyond my comprehension so I passed on it.  But, since the offerings did fix the requested issue, I will close this, award the points, and open another item in an attempt to fix the DHCP/DNS issues.

Thanks

Post your solution here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/2003_Server/Q_27477628.html#a37234849 and earn more points.  I have already given you the points for this one since you provided a solution to my question.  Unfortunately, CEICW didn't solve the problem as I had hoped.  So, I am throwing more points out there with a new question.  That thread is already receiving some activity.

Thanks again.
