    Can anyone help me uninstall SysRestore?

    I stumbled upon SysRestore late last year. It looked promising. And it was free! So I just had to try it out with my new cp build running Win7.

    It didn't like it.

    Now it is "in Recovery Mode" and it seems there's no way out. The problem with it being in recovery mode is, you can't do anything but be in recovery mode. You can't install the latest version because it's in recovery mode. You can't uninstall it because it's in recovery mode.

    You can use it while it's in recovery mode, but it doesn't make sense to use it because it won't save anything new you do - because it's in recovery mode.

    I've had several back-and-forths with SysRestore support. Right - If they did good, I wouldn't be here.

    I know it's a long shot seeing if anyone here can help. But I'm all out of ammo. I really don't want to reformat this box. I've been wrestling with this for 3 months because I don't want to reformat.

    All I need to do is get this out of SysRestore's Recovery Mode so I can uninstall it.

    Sure sounds simple.

    It sure isn't.

    You could disable system restore which would delete all present restore points, then re-enable system restore.

    Thanks.

    But this is about a program called SysRestore. - Not Microsoft's System Restore.

    SysRestore requires System Restore be disabled. So System Restore was disabled.

    have you tried Ctrl R when booting as suggested on the FAQ page here: http://windowssecrets.com/forums/sho...all-SysRestore

    Have you tried booting into Safe Mode?

    Yes and Yes. It remains "in recovery mode".

    When you booted to safe mode, did you have an option to run Windows System Restore?

    I can't say I like saying this ... but here's what just happened.

    I couldn't remember the answer to your question, so I thought I better boot it up and make sure. However, I must have pressed F8 too late, because I didn't get any boot options. It just booted.

    And by that I mean, it booted like it used to boot in October of last year before installing SysRestore. So I navigated to the SysRestore folder, ran the uninstaller, rebooted, and did a little dance.

    I've rebooted half a dozen times since to make sure I wasn't hallucinating. And, sure enough, SysRestore is uninstalled and the computer seems to be hap hap happy.

    Strangest experience I've ever been through. And my first computer was WindowsME! I always appreciated the in-depth look WinME forced upon me. I learned so much about operating systems, thanks to ME!

    But I have no idea how to feel about the battle I just had. I'm not exactly happy that it magically fixed itself.

    OHHHHH!!! That just gave me a thought!! I forgot that I let it install some MS updates when I last shut it off.

    :thinking: OK - I gotta dig out some logs and see if I can figure out what happened.

    Thanks for everyone's replies just the same.

    Glad you got it working again. You might want to consider a disk imaging program and making an image backup in case something like this happens again.
