Manual Removal of Exchange 2003 Management Tools

I need to manually remove any reference to the Exchange 2003 Management Tools from a Server 2003 box.  I have recently moved to Exchange 2010, and my Unity server is not working properly. Cisco keeps telling me that the Exchange 2003 Management Tools are still lingering on the Unity box.  They are not listed in Add/Remove programs.  I've searched the registry and Windows directories and just cannot find anything. Does anyone know what Registry keys are linked to Exchange 2003 Management tools so I can blow them away?

If it still references to old Exchange server you can remove it from AD using ADSI Edit utility.

look in >configuration>services>DOMAIN>Administrative Groups>Exchange Administrative Group>

The problem is on a Cisco Unity box.  When I do a Gather Unity System Info it references Microsoft Exchange 2003 System Tools, and the tools are no longer installed.  

I even reinstalled then and used Revo Uninstaller to hard remove it so it would find all the associated registry keys and such.  

It just keeps showing up in Unity.

I don't think that is what I am running into.  I followed the document to get Exchange 2010 to work with Unity.  Our Voicemail services all work fine.  The only issue we have is the MWI (voicemail light) doens't respond to new messages or when you delete messages.  Cisco has been working on this for 2 days.  
Then we run the GUSI tool to gather logs, and it clearly states I still have Exchange 2003 Systems tools installed, which I don't.  Then Cisco keeps asking me to remove them, which I have done twice now.

Cisco found the issue. It was simply some older mapi dll's that were left in the system32 folder after the uninstall.  They deleted a few dll's and the problem was fixed.
