I am running windows server 2008 R2.  I need to uninstall the remains of my sql 2005 install, but it will just not uninstall. I went through the add/remove programs, and as you can see in the picture, and I tell it to uninstall the instance listed, but then after pressing ok and finish, the screen disappears and does nothing.

Also, with the Microsoft SQL server setup support files, it's asking for a location that I have no idea where the files are at, so that component won't uninstall either.

Any help?   Thanks...
