Windows SBS Server 11 removing Sharepoint and installing Exchange

This is a newbie question, but I have a new Windows Small Business Server 11 (which I understand is 2008 R2).  I worked with some other companies, Symantec, etc., to fix some problems - and in the course of things my Exchange Server and website on IIS vanished.  I would like to completely remove Sharepoint - I do not have any need for this that I can see.  I seem to have three IIS websites just for Sharepoint.  I only use Symantec and Filemaker.  I do want Exchange back in.  How do I remove Sharepoint and reinstall Exchange?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

First of all Sharepoint is an integral part of SBS I'd suggest just not using it rather than removing it.

As for Exchange I'd suggest the first port of call is the SBS repair guide here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg697169.aspx

Sharepoint seems to interfere with both Symantec and Filemaker, and not sure what it does, or why I would want it.   I will look at this repair guide, thank you.

Everything interferes with Symantec - It's an awful product and I wouldn't curse my worst (or best) customer with it.

SharePoint provides a variety of services/support services on an SBS system, including the remote web workplace/app.

If you want a stable system (symantec not withstanding) you will implement SBS as it was.designed to be implemented and managed - via wizard. Otherwise, you could have serious problems with certain aspects of the system.

I agree with Lee.  I never use a Symantec product unless it's installed on its own dedicated server.

Follow the repair guide to get SBS to a state it should be in.

This repair site is a great resource.  Symantec has been a wonderful product for us and I have not intention of ever using anything else.  Exchange seems to be running, it is just the Exchange website on IIS that is missing.  I have removed the Sharepoint websites.  I don't see using any features of Sharepoint.

Its interesting that whenever I use Experts Exchange I get lectured about how I should have something else, instead of trying to help me solve my issue.  As a charity, I am grateful for what I have and am trying to do the best I can. It is like telling a homeless person that he should have bought a steak rather than go down to the mission.
