Yeah, it seems that SQL Express is SQL Server 2012, and SQL 2008 R2 has a different name (could be just a . or your machine name, or another named instance).

Uninstalling just 2012 won't help, as 2008 R2 then still doesn't use the SQLExpress name. You would need to uninstall both and then reinstall 2008 R2.

However, you could also leave everything as is and use SQL Server Management Studio to manage your database and its objects.
