Since you have a named instance, the recommended way is to uninstall the instance and then reinstall, at least according to this response from a Microsoft employee.

You might also want to check out the sp_dropserver and sp_addserver, but I have zero experience or familiarity with that, so I will refrain from shooting from the hip on that topic.
