Windows 7: Microsoft SQL Server 2005 End of Life

28 May 2016   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium, 64 bit, SP1
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 End of Life

As this is no longer supported by Microsoft and I have no intention of upgrading to Windows 10, can I delete this from my computer? I'm not even sure what this does or if I need it. Secunia reports that hackers are already exploiting this.

Any help at all will be sincerely appreciated.

Hi Katie,
From what i gather about this, its a developer tool, although it has links to visual Basics, there are newer versions available thou.

Create a restore point then delete it.
