I installed Visual C# 2010 Express which installed SQL Express R2. Then I installed
SQL Server 2008 R2 Express with Advanced Services (64-bit) x64. After doing that I was not able to connect to the databases I had one named SQLEXPRESS and the other one SQLXPRESS.
So I decided to uninstall both of the SQL Express. I was able to uninstall the
SQL Server 2008 R2 Express with Advanced Services (64-bit) x64 but I was not able to uninstall the SQL Express R2 so I uninstalled the Visual C# 2010 Express thinking that it would remove the SQL Express but it did not. Then I did a dumb thing I started deleting
the SQL Express manually but I was not able to delete all bo the folders. Then to make things worse I emptied the Recycle Bin.
Can someone help me fix my mistake? Any help would be appreciated
