1. The title doesn't explain all.

2.
You can't remove the "Windows Xp Home Recovery Console".
It's an intergal part of the software.

3. Would you care to explain why you think you need to "remove" it?
The only easy day was yesterday.

1) Yes it does


2) YES u CAN.

Removing the Recovery Console
Restart your computer, click Start, click My Computer, and then double-click the hard disk on which you installed the Recovery Console.
On the Tools menu, click Folder Options, and then click the View tab.
Click Show hidden files and folders, click to clear the Hide protected operating system files check box, and then click OK.
At the root folder, delete the Cmdcons folder and the Cmldr file.
At the root folder, right-click the Boot.ini file, and then click Properties.
Click to clear the Read-only check box, and then click OK.
WARNING: Modifying the Boot.ini file incorrectly may prevent your computer from restarting. Be sure to delete only the entry for the Recovery Console. Also, it is recommended that you change the attribute for the Boot.ini file back to a read-only state after you complete this procedure. Open the Boot.ini file in Microsoft Windows Notepad, and remove the entry for the Recovery Console. It looks similar to this:
C:\cmdcons\bootsect.dat="Microsoft Windows Recovery Console" /cmdcons

Save the file and close it.


3) Cause I feel like it.


4) LOL. Pwned

Yes, it can be removed from the hard drive...just as it is installed to the hard drive by some.

We have a trickster on our hands :thumbsup:.l
