I have a Windows 2003 server with an install of WSUS that is not being utilized.  Are there any gotchas to uninstalling or can I just get rid of it?  The reason I ask is that it appears to be a bit of a memory hog and it reports annoyingly on my server reports that it has computers that have not updated in a while.  I manage updates locally as I only have about 25 seats.

wow.. 25 user network and you do them localy? gives you something to do i guess :P

Nah, just ininstall it as a normal program, and delete the database and downloaded content too. Its all pretty easy. just need to make sure you change the GPO back to using MS servers.

Great, that is what I thougt.  I just did not see much use in SUS.  I set everone to automatically download as we are not running anything too specific or strange.  Thanks for the tip.
