ACT7 - SQL Server Error on Startup

Hi, I deleted ACT and now when I startup my computre I get this message:
"SQL Server could not find the specified named instance (ACT7) - please specify the name of an existing instance of the invocation of sqlservr.exe. If you believe that your installation is corrupt or has been tampered with, uninstall then re-run setup to correct this problem"
Any ideas?

Providing you're not running any other SQL applications, you might uninstall MS SQL server from Windows Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs
