As far as I know, the only "system modification" the Apache installer does
on Windows is to register Apache as a service and put Apache Service Monitor
in the startup folder. The uninstaller should revert both of these

Your httpd.conf will not be removed when uninstalling, nor will it be
overwritten when reinstalling (in the same directory). If you look in
Apache's conf directory, you should find a httpd.default.conf, which you can
use if you want to start from scratch.

No need to un-/reinstall, unless you want to upgrade to 2.0.47.
