    Unhappy Unanswered: Uninstalling problems

    Hello all, Has anyone seen this error message before??? I get this when I try to uninstall SQL Server 2k.

    "The log file 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Uninst.isu' is not valid or the data has been corrupted. Uninstallation will not continue."

    I'm using windows 2000 server

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks.

    Try this :

    For example, remove the MSDE 2000 data folder for a default instance:
    \Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Data
    For example, remove the MSDE 2000 data folder for a named instance:
    \Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL$<INSTANCENAME>\Data
    For example, remove the MSDE 2000 program folder for a default instance:
    \Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Binn
    For example, remove the MSDE 2000 program folder for a named instance:
    \Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL$<
    1. For an MSDE 2000 default instance, remove the following key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSSQLServer
    2. For an MSDE 2000 named instance, remove the following key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\<INSTANCENAME>
    3. If the following registry key points to the MSDE 2000 instance ProductCode, remove the value InstanceComponentSet.x. For example, InstanceComponentSet.1 has a value that matches the ProductCode of Sqlrun01.msi:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\Component Set\InstanceComponentSet.1
    4. Remove the SQLServer Service registry key.

    For an MSDE 2000 default instance, remove the following:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\MSSQLServer

    For an MSDE 2000 named instance, remove the following:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\MSSQL$<INSTANCENAME>

    5. Remove the SQLServerAgent Service registry key:

    For an MSDE 2000 default instance, remove the following:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\SQLServerAgent

    For an MSDE 2000 named instance, remove the following:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\SQLAgent$<INSTANCENAME>
