SQL Server 2008 - How to uninstall or Delete unused Multiple Instances

By leonjmmk ·
Hi everyone,

I have encountered an unusual problem. I had SQLExpress 2008 installed on my machine. Recently, I thought of checking out the features of SQL Server 2008 by installing an Enterprise Evaluation Version. Uninstalling of SQLEXPRESS went fine and i successfully installed SQL Server Enterprise. But, it still shows Instances of SQLExpress at Login. I uninstalled SQL Server 2008 again and this time removed the following existing Registry Keys after uninstalling:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSSQLSERVER
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MsDtsServer100

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server.

On Installing again. I figured out that Instances are adding up at SQL Server Login.

Is there any solution to this problem for removing unused and invalid multiple instances.
