Just try to reboot exchange server once and check if you are able to uninstall with standard way
Also ensure that there should not be any mailbox left on exchange server
This time keep exchange dump ready if asked

There is no mail boxes on the mentioned server.  Rebooted the server but still MS Exchange is not visible on Add/remove programs to uninstall

can you just try to run setup from exchnage CD or dump to remove it Hopefully
What is the SP version of exchange 2003 ?

Just use exchange setup dump with SP2, it should work.

If you have to, reinstall Exchange then remove it again.
There is no Exchange 2003 with SP2 media, so when you reinstall the product you will get a ton of errors about older versions of the files, just skip past those.

The "Exchange Server Setup Progress.log" can tell if the setup had a problem, check it first.
