Good day and welcome to the QnA forum

The following document is the official instructions on uninstalling SSMS


https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/sql/ssms/uninstall-management-studio

It can help if you will provide the version which you want to uninstall as there might be some differences but the above link should give you a good starting point

Hi,

(1) Please stop writing the messages in uppercase characters. uppercase characters are used to highlight a specific word or are used to mark a shout in the virtual world of forums

(2) Once the process of uninstall messed up, the task can be very complicated in some case and might require manually fixing the registry, which is something that I will not recommend to be done without the right knowledge/experience

Therefore, please try to use the build in repair option or uninstall option

If you encounter problem then please provide more information since we cannot read you mind or work with your machine directly. Saying that you have a problem does not help us to help you. Add screenshots and copy to the forum any error text which you get. Check the windows application error log and the SSMS installation error log and inform us what is the exact version of your installed SSMS -> provide as many information as you can.

Please try to use this toubleshooter which could help you automatically repair issues when you're blocked from installing or removing programs.

MINE SQL SERVER MANAGEMENT STUIDO VERSION IS 18.

In addition, what the version of SSMS are you using? You can check the version by going to the Help > About window in SSMS.
If you are using SSMS18 GA version, you can just install the newer version of SSMS, it will replace the old version of SSMS automatically.
Best Regards,
Amelia
