You could go into Services and disable the SQL Server VSS Writer service instead.

If you have Office Pro - Sql (one of personal versions) could be installed by default.
You can safely go to Control panel, Add or Remove Programs and uninstall all components of SQL server

If als315 solution does not work or SQL server is not installed, look in Add/Remove Programs for 'Microsoft SQL Server VSS Writer' and remove it.

Hi, is there any harm leaving this error?
They use CAD link for making signs etc here and Im a bit nervous that add/remove will have unexpected results.

Should I be at all nervous or just proceed?

If your applications work now without problems, you don't need these components (there should be 3 positions with SQL in name).

That sounds like a plan.  I will be back on site there in 2 weeks.
