I did it
go to control panel and click on uninstall
select sql server 2008 then click on remove.
select the instance you want to remove in my case sqlexpress which was installed by visual studio.
then it will ask what all to remove while removing instance never select select all simply check the first option in list and click next to remove
only that instance will get removed not sql enterprise edition
thanks
