How to Uninstall Sql Server Express that gets installed with Visual Studio 2010

1. Go to Add/ Remove Programs.
2. Choose “Microsoft SQL Server 2008”
**I had Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 installed but you still need to select “Microsoft SQL Server 2008” NOT “Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2”. If you do choose R2, you will see the SQLEXPRESS instance but you will not be able to select it!

3. Click on the REMOVE link (This will allow you to chose the instance to remove. See image)

4. Select SQLEXPRESS and remove!
