What are you trying to do? If you want to start all over again fresh, go to Control Panel > Programs and Features and remove Microsoft SQL Server.

try deleting (AFTER BACKING UP YOUR REGISTRY)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server

If this doesn't work - you're probably going to need to backup your machine data and rebuild it.

@parps924,
  As dbbishop says, if you want to reinstall MS SQL, that's likely the cleanest way to go.

  You ask about getting sql to "ask for new  database info again"?  There are a few default system databases used by MS SQL itself... I'm not certain if you are asking about changing the setting for one of the default databases, or perhaps to add a user or group to the list of system administrators in SQL (that was a problem, especially in SQL 2008 and beyond when local administrators were no longer automatically database SA.)  Or are you attempting to build a new database?  (Or, I'm not sure if you are really referring to SQL Reporting Services setup...?)  

  I think there are a lot of people who would love to help you, but we aren't yet sure what you are asking.

If you want a new instance just run the installer again and click that option... Still not clear on what exactly you are trying to do here

You can't be serious that the question was how do you use windows control panel to uninstall a program?
