WSUS accounts

Uninstalling WSUS might leave some WSUS accounts on local computers that are running SQL Server. The Network SSService and ASP.NET accounts that are created by WSUS Setup are not removed by the WSUS uninstallation component. If an application or database is using these accounts, this ensures that these applications or databases do not fail. If you are sure that no other application or database requires the Network Service or ASP.NET accounts, you can manually remove them from the computer running SQL Server.
