Hi paulte.

You should run the setup program and choose the option to uninstall the site on the machine.

From the Start menu:

Start ->
   Systems Management Server ->
      SMS Setup

This opens the SMS Setup program. Choose the "Remove SMS" option from there.

This however will not remove all files, registry keys and accounts. You need to do a little bit of manual clean-up after that as well. See Microsoft knowledge base article Q217044 for details about what you need to remove as well:

Paul, I hope this answers your question. Please let me know if you have any problems doing any of the above or need additional information.
