i was using a third party to set up replication and my local server is in LOCAL not Name instanced
and i see this third party was just using sql replication.

I uninstall the s/w and im left with one database
DBRS_Distribution.

What is the name of your local server? or ip address of your local server? if you worry about the password than create new user with sa privillages. register your sql server by name or ip using this user and drop the replication.
