Hi,

According to your description, they seem to be Veeam components, third-party components won't affect Windows Hyper V, while it's recommended to consult Veeam on how to uninstall them properly.

For Windows SQL services, it's recommended to turn to the SQL forum about how to uninstall them or shrink the database properly:

Thanks for your time!
Best Regards,
Anne

Thanks Anne, It sounds me, uninstalling through Program and Features, will not uninstall all component. Seems some one in past tested/trained with Veeam installation. I don't think other than community forum I will not get direct Veeam support in this.


SQL server - cannot see any attached application to SQL, any idea is there a relation with Hyper-V

Hi,

If you would like to uninstall Veeam components properly, it's recommended to turn the Veeam community for better help, besides, uninstall veeam components won't affect Hyper V.

Thanks for your time!

Probably not but it will be much cleaner to simply stand up a new one.
