  • If you don't want to use uninstall... But I believe you can stop the services...and setting that start type to manual, will not take any memory...

    you can see microsoft sql server related services in services.msc . Go and stop that...

    No idea. Why did you put SQL Server on the computer in the first place? If you got it as part of a third-party application, you need to ask yourself whether you still need that application running.

  • If you have some applications that run on your machine as SQL Server is just like another application and you do not work with SQL Server so just remove it
