There isn't an 'uninstall' for TCP/IP, to remove it you have to do some reg modifications...

Have you seen this link? - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/325356

That should do what you want, or is there another reason you are trying to uninstall it?

Oh ok, so the link I provided doesn't help?
Similar one here on EE itself - http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Server/2003_Server/Q_21284707.html

Can you try those steps? Or have you already done that and still issues?

The TCP/IP settings are under a NIC's properties. Just remove the NIC from your device manager and re-install it again.
