How do I uninstall a failed installation of Storage Foundation Basic please?

Not applicable
Windows 2003 + SF Basic.
Installation failed.  Tried to uninstall but the uninstaller just comes back with "Another installer is running...".  Which there isn't, and fails.
I am DESPARATE to get this off my system - how can I do this please?
Rebooting hasn't helped either.  Which services do I need to manually stop and how do I get Windows Disk Manager back please?
Many thanks!

Hopefully you've gotten this resolved by now. If not...


Cleanup scripts are available under the Tools\VPI directory on the installation media. I would suggest downloading updated cleanup scripts from the Support website as there were issues with the ones included with the original release. Use WxRTCleanup.bat to remove SFW Basic.
