To perform a clean install , take a look at [this post][1] to clean the registry entries left after uninstalling.

The best place to start is within ADD REMOVE program within Control Panel in Windows. This process takes you through the same screens as installing SQL Server but you then have the option to chose to also remove components and you can specify which instance to do these actions against. Usually an uninstall of the full version requires a restart to complete the process.

Or "Program and Features" if working with Window Server 2008 or above :)

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
