uninstaller does not work for BES on sbs 2008 server

We have old BES 5.0 on an SBS 2008 server.  To clean up the server since this is no longer used, I tried to remove through the Add/Remove in the control panel.  The un-installer gets about halfway through and then just disappears.  Nothing is actually removed.  I did go through the Microsoft SQL 2005 uninstall process to remove the SQL instance of the Blackberry SQL Database, with no problems thinking that would help.  But the uninstaller for the Blackberry Enterprise Server for MS exchange will still not complete the uninstall.

I have seen the clean remove instructions from the blackberry website but step number one is to use the uninstaller in the add/remove programs of the control panel.

If any one has any idea of what to try next, I really really would appreciate it.

Thanks, my thoughts as well.  The SQL instance is removed and all associated services disabled.  BES will just have to remain as is at this point.
