Disable SQL SBS 2003

Hi all

I have an SBS server 2003 std r2 service pack 2

This server is running very slow
I use this server for exchange, file and print and several applications like Sage and Payroll

I have scanned this server with several virus and malware tools (there was no malware or virus found)
I have installed 3GB of RAM bringing this server from 1GB to 4GB  

Still this server is running very slow

In task manager store.exe and sqlservr.exe are the main RAM hogs

As far as I am aware I am not using SQL for anything (unless SBS needs it)

So my question is
Is there steep by steep instructions on how I can disable SQL and is it ok to disable it

Thanks
Robbie

Abs uses the SQL server. There are probably other programs using it too. Open up the SQL configuration progrma and you can see all of the instances. You can also see these in services.

Store.exe is designed to take as much memory as it can, and there's nothing you can really do about that.

Is the server slow when you access it locally, or is the slow performance restricted to accessing services over the network?

Ok, well at least that rules out a couple of things. Are you sure that it's an issue with the memory (it seems that's where your question was focused)?

It may be worth using SBS 2003's Performance Monitor (if you haven't already) to check on I/O, disk reads etc etc to see if that throws any light on it.
