That's the reason I asked about the application. Follow this

You need to use the last option, where cluster node is removed.

I tried this solution Also before :

i removed this two key from regedit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\ClusDisk

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\ClusSvc

After that tried to remove the cluster feature " without restart the server " 

but give me error can't remove the cluster because the server is active node in clustering !
