2003 Routing and Remote Access Broken

I just inherited an infected 2003 server and while I have most issues mitigated, the lingering issue is with Routing and Remote Access.  Launching the snap-in yields the following error:

MMC could not create the snap-in.  The snap-in might not have been installed correctly.

Name: Routing and Remote Access
CLSID: {1AA7F839-C7F5-11D0-A376-00C04FC9DA04}

The RRAS service starts successfully and the rrasmgmt.msc file exists.

I am also not able to to remove the RRAS from the server as it fails with an error indicating that RRAS is running.  But I can't shut it down because I can't access the mgmt console ( and stopping the service doesn't appear to impact the ability to remove the role ).

I also can't run a sfc /scannow as I don't have the 2003 installation media ( its all inherited ).

Can you access the management console remotely from another server or workstation?

Attempting to manage from another server throws an error:  

You do not have sufficient permissions to complete the operation.

This actually turned out to be the fix - I was authenticating with the wrong credentials, but once I straightened that out, i was able to connect remotely...
