Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This is in the system tray because you have SQL 7 or SQL 2000 installed on the machine. If you have the Office 2003 Business Contact Manage this would have installed SQL Server as part of the package. There are also several other pieces of software which would have installed SQL Server automatically.
