I am unable to uninstall roles and feature on Windows Server 2012 R2 due to pending restart

Last Modified: 2015-03-22
Due to an error on IIS when using remoteApp I am trying to uninstall IIS on my Windows Server 2012 R2, but the job fails because of pending restart. I have restartet the server many times, but the problem still exist. I hope some of you can help me figure out what is causing the server to want restarting all the time and not give me the option to remove a role/feature.

I have accidentially deleted the RDWEB folder on the IIS and therefore I need to uninstall the service and install it again
