Airoff, that does not sound a good solution to me. There are several registry keys as well you need to delete from your server first of all. What I am wondering is, how someone could install exchange server on a PC? Venugopa, are you trying to say you installed it on windows server? If yes then you will also need to remove several entires from your active directory as well as the server where you tried installing exchnag server.

you probably uninstaled it, but didn't remove it from the registry properly... try searching the registry on: Start > Run and type Regedit, and go to search, and type SmartBro... yuste delete those keys and reboot...
warning! backup your registry before you make any changes!
You Havn't specified, What is the problem exactly. I mean you have not specified the error Description.
But still The problem could arose while uninstalling Antivirus Program would be:
1. Any *.dll file missing from antivirus directory.
2. system file of antivirus missing from System32 directory of windows.
3. Any file that belongs to antivirus are not able to load while installinfg like uninst.exe.
4.Windows installer 3.0 is not installed on ur system
(Check out all the above including reviewing ur antivirus directory for uninst.exe file)
To solve this error you must do the following:
1. Run AVG antivirus setup program to repair. some times it doesnot give you the option if half of installed program have been removed from system.
2. Go to run type "regedit" and press enter
3. go to hkey_local_machine ->SOFTWARE -> and select AVG
expand trees of AVG.
4. Check for data path and its contents in AVG directory of program files, and also For UninstPath to varify that the uninst.exe in avg directory of program files is not missplaced
5. After doing the specified solution 60% are the chances that ur program would be uninstalled. else if it doesnot uninstall the program and gives the same error then Choose system restore tool.
For restoring do the following:
1. Go to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories ->System Tools
and select System Restore
2. Go to next window, Choose the restore point that was before installing of ur AVG Antivirus.
3. Select that restore point by reading the description.
4. Click next to restore.
Note: Your system will restart after choosing the restore point and clicking next. It takes some time to restore.
Most probably this tool will help you to remove this antivirus.
Remove it's entry from registry by Going to run type "regedit" and press enter
go to hkey_local_machine ->SOFTWARE -> andright click AVG
and select delete option to delete.
First things First!
1) you always going to have problems with exchange servers, or migrations. ** systems are not perfects**
2) You can migrate the emails to the new server, but, if only are in the correct version of Exchange 2003.
3) if backup is damage or fail, you lost everything.
4) try to reinstall the Server, and all utilites, is better, I know takes more time, but is better because you created yourself.
I suggest you to install from scratch!
I think you mean email *facilities* although your version may be more accurate :-)))
You can't just download it - you have to buy it. If you want it for a relatively small organisation it is much cheaper to buy SBS 2003 which includes both Server 2003 and Exchange as well as other useful things. It's also relatively straightforward to install & get working although I highly recommend reading one of the many guide books that are available first.
If you really need to install them separately and have not set Exchange up before (or been on a course on how to do it) you are likely to have serious problems getting it working. It's complex, requires quite a bit of specialist knowledge and there are many pitfalls.
