    1) Stop all SQL Services.
    2) Uninstall all Microsoft SQL services in Control Panel
    3) Delete all files in %Program Files%\Microsoft SQL Server directory
    4) Open REGEDIT32 and delete key "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server"
    5) Open REGEDIT32 and delete key "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server"

    Use REGEDIT32 on your own risk.
