    removing an instance of sql server

    Is there a way to remove a single instance of SqlServer from my computer without doing a complete uninstall/reinstall?

    I loaded some sample code that came with one of the Microsoft Certification books on my machine. It installs its own instance of sqlserver and I need to get it off my work machine. Suggestions?

    This is how to do it...

    Select SQL Server 2000 Components, select Install Database Server, and then setup prepares the SQL Server Installation Wizard. At the Welcome screen, click Next.


    In Computer Name dialog box, select Local Computer or Remote computer.


    In the Installation Selection dialog box, click Upgrade, Remove, or Add Components to an existing instance of SQL Server, and then click Next.


    In the Instance Name dialog box, Default is selected if you have the Default instance installed. If you want to uninstall a named instance, select it from the Instance Name list box, and then click Next.

    I got this from BOL. Look there!
