I am seeing an error message when Windows starts up to the effect: "Your SQL Server is damaged or tampered with. Could not open SQLEVN70.RLL. Please remove SQLServer and reinstall."
OK so far but when I try to uninstall SQLServer Express, the operation fails.
Any suggestions for making uninstall work so that I can start over with a fresh installation of SQL Server express?
sql server 2005
sql server express
install remove uninstall "SQLServer Express"

Looks like one of the files is corrupt. If i were you i would create a restore point and delete all the files and folder associated wih SQL express manually and then try reinstalling it all over again.
All the best

Thanks for the suggestion. Even after going back to the earliest restore point from way back in May, I still see the same SQL Server alert box show up when Windows starts up:
"Your SQL Server installation is either corrupt or has been tampered with (could not open SQLEVN70.RLL). Please uninstall then re-install setup to correct this problem"
This problem was not occuring back in May so the System Restore feature is not able to correct this problem.
Any other suggestions would be welcome!
"System Restore" SQLServer uninstall remove

Permissions? Did you happen to rename the system?

The permissions and filenames were ok.
Something got corrupted in .net Framework 2.0 which became apparent when I tried to open OneCare which depends on it. It seems to be straightened out now.
Thanks for your ideas!
