You might check for any WSUS services if they are still running.
I also found something that R2 will look for this service no matter what.
Event 421 After Removing WSUS in Windows Server SBS
I decided to move wsus a while ago onto another server, and since then we've been getting our application log spammed with errors:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Windows Server Update Services
Event Category: Update Services Service
Event ID: 421
Connection to database failed. Reason=SQL Server does not exist or access denied.. Connection string: Net=dbnmpntw;Data Source=\\.\pipe\MSSQL$MICROSOFT##SSEE\sql\query;;I nitial Catalog=SUSDB;Connection Timeout=60;Application Name=WSUS SQL Connection;Trusted_Connection=Yes;Pooling='true'; Max Pool Size = 100

Now I've removed wsus from this server, even tried removing the old sql database to shut it up, I've been trawling the web on and off for a while trying to find an answer to it when we get some quite time, but alas, I can't find anything that has solved it yet. So short of reinstalling the server, which as far as I can see now is the only way to get rid of this, how can I clear this error? its running on server 2003 r2.
Not to sound a dull end, I had seen that, just didn't really know what to make of it, what does susanne mean by "You now need to remove the R2 piece. As it hooks into WSUS."
I'd need to reinstall R2?
