    Can't Uninstall WSUS 3.0

    I have been trying to uninstall WSUS 3.0 from Windows 2003 Enterprise R2 Server but whenever i am doing that i get an error message saying "The verson of WSUS installed is incompatible with this version. You should use Add Remove Programs to WSUS (Error 0x80041453)" in event log. I am already trying to remove it from Add / Remove Programs even after that it keeps on saying the same thing.Any help will be appreciated.
