Running SQL 2000 SP4. When installing sharepoint 3.0, it installed  SQL express 2005. I uninstalled sharepoint and then installed it again but attached the databases to SQL 2000. I need to remove SQL express 2005 but it is not in the Add/remove programs. How can i do this? I dont want to disturb any of my SQL 2000 databases.
