    7 SP1 beta won't uninstall

    I have a Dell B130 laptop that I was testing the SP1 beta on. Now when I try to uninstall the beta it will not let me. When I highlight the line there is no option to uninstall or change. With the beta on there I don't get updates like I should. Do I need to reinstall Windows 7 or what?

    Welcome to the Lounge.

    What you might try is downloading the SP1 install package from Microsoft and installing it. Maybe installing the released package over the beta will then allow you to uninstall it in the normal way through Programs and Features.

    tried that, the download won't install without uninstalling the beta.

    The article just posted by Fred Langa might help, but with the SP1 Beta it might not. If it does not a repair install may help. If not a complete reinstall will probably be necessary. After this point, investigate Imaging to alleviate this problem.

    What about RevoUninstaller? Might be worth a try.
