We have uninstall all our versions of Microsoft SQL Server 2005/2008/2012 with EE assistant (all instances were Express version).  However, we found in the windows registry  a series of entries regarding MS SQL (see below for an example).

wregedit
Should we manually delete these entries?

What does EE recommend?
