Mark just a tip....but don't un install and reinstall straight away. SQL servers; as they tend to be a bit weird when it comes to reinstalls. Be sure after you reboot when un installing, to use some kind of Registry Scanner or Manually remove any reference of SQL from your registry, should any remain. Or you could be facing major errors when reinstalling it again.

Just remember, that SQL servers tie themselves into many of your operating systems core components, WMI etc.... Many installations and reinstalls may break your system or the SQL server itself, preventing you from installing a working server at a later time.

If you are having issues with it, you're best to try resolve them by command line first. May I ask why you want to un install it?

Agree 100% with KeithAiden, IF you're un-installing to re-install you will probably end up with more problems than you currently have.  I've had terrible problems in the past tying to do this with SQL Server (and ended up rebuilding the entire machine on some occasions),

There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.
