    You might check to see if there are any DTS packages, and if so, you might want to delete them and see what happens. If this doesn't work, you may want to consider uninstalling and reinstalling SQL Server, if that is practical.

    This isn't the first post I've seen where DBAs remove replication and have problems. It's really important to remove replication in a certain way. Search MSDN for the proper method. When I first removed replication, I started deleting subscriptions individually and deleting Agent jobs, etc. BIG mistake!

    Some SQL books walk you through the process of removing replication, too.

    Good luck!

    Here is an excerpt from MSDN to give you an example:

    "Deleting articles from publications that have subscriptions is not allowed. To delete an article, you must first delete all subscriptions to the publication."

    Valid tip by Kelly, you should spare time to see BOL for replication topics which covers the required information.
