Well, as I said, this came to me a major wreck. It had no Sp's and had everything from 'Search Protect' to 'White Smoke' although I'm just speculating that these are not very nice programs. I did make some big mistakes deleting files by getting rid of everything 'Revo" listed. I had done 75% of the uninstall when I saw the 'only delete bold items' My BAD!
Needless to say, that really messed up the Registry. I used SystemMechanicPro to fix that problem. Also in the process of restoring I downloaded a lot of the recommended drivers from Dell.
The PC is a Dell Optiplex 745 64 bit. The OS was 32 bit. I also used a Dell diagnostic program That installed on the root drive. Ruined a 16 gig USB flash drive to do it. At any rate, I was deleting what I thought were excess files, and LO and BEHOLD! No BOOYMgr. Well, I got that figured out and everything was good. That is when I decided to install the RC. And the rest I have elaborated on.
I followed the instructions for installing the RC to the letter. Why it did what I have previously described, is a mystery to me.
Your thoughts input is greatly appreciated. I just fixed a laptop running WIN 7 with the missing bootmgr. That went remarkably well although the procedure is slightly different.
