failover cluster created test unable to remove

created a test failover cluster with 3 nodes  using Windows Server 2012R2 when i removed the cluster using the failover cluster manager one node failed to remove and now I cannot remove the cluster.  the cluster still show in Server Manager however it does not show in Failover Cluster manager.  When I try to create a new cluster and include all 3 nodes I receive the error message that HV3 ( the node name)  is already in a cluster.  from powershell using the Get-Cluster cmdlet it does report the cluster as there and will not allow me to remove it.

could use some help cleaning up a failed experiment.
Thanks

Some combination of these processes should help:

Many thanks
I did have to use the scorched earth approach shown in the registry edit.  removed the features and roles, restarted and then added them back.
I was able to create another cluster and include all 3 nodes.
again my thanks and the testing continues.

Happy to help.   I've had to go through this process once or twice myself.   Fortunately, Microsoft Clustering is pretty reliable and these sorts of problems are rare.
