There's a hole in your logic. The program isn't working and you are afraid that if you follow our instructions the program won't work. You know it doesn't work now, so what have you got to lose?

As Jerry said, Yvan Koenig has written an uninstaller script that you can download from this page. The file is called Uninstall iWork'09.zip
Have you tried it?
I did download it but the problem with it is that it doesn't include any instructions. It's a Apple script but I've never worked with one so it doesn't help. I did try double clicking on it but nothing happened.
I also clicked 'Play" on the other script and it said "running" but nothing changed (iWork is still there).
Thanks guys for helping and trying to sort this out. Appreciate it.

Tried both of those things fruhulda but the iWork folder is still there. So I decided to try to manually delete it. However, the files listed below are not there:
User/Applications/iWork '09 folder
User/Library/Application Support/iWork '09
User/Library/Preferences the com.apple.iwork.Keynote.plist
User/Library/Preferences the com.apple.iwork.Numbers.plist
User/Library/Preferences the com.apple.iwork.Pages.plist
So maybe the applescript did work, but I can't explain why the entire iWork folder was left behind untouched.
I do have a program called AppCleaner which found other files, including the crash reports, I saved those just incase. I'll run AppCleaner and do a reboot. I also have a backup of my harddrive if anyone needs to see any other files later.

OK everything is uninstalled. I rebooted and reinstalled. Updated to 4.3.
At first when I clicked on opening the template chooser, just like before nothing happened. Then around a minute later they all showed up. As far as I can tell it is now working correctly.
I want to REALLY thank all of you guys for helping me out with this. I really appreciated it
