Apparently I have 2 instances of SQL Server installed on my laptop. I'd like to uninstall one.
The one I'd like to keep is for my ACT application: "SQL Server (ACT7)"
The one I'd like to uninstall is: "SQL Server (SQLEXPRESS)"

Looking at the attached screen shot of installed programs, which program(s) should I uninstall, and in what order should I uninstall them?

Any idea why "installed programs" does not show 2 instances of SQL Server?
