    Hi bhtpoc,

    Updating the MBR should remove this from your startup.

    Fix the MBR using the Paragon Standard Recovery CD (Linux/DOS):
    -Boot from the Recovery CD and choose either Normal Mode or Safe Mode
    -Run Boot Corrector
    -Select Correct the Master Boot Record (MBR), Click Next
    -Select Update the MBR executable code, Click Next, Click Yes, Click Finish

    Fix the MBR using the Paragon Advanced Recovery CD (WinPE):
    -Boot from the Recovery CD
    -Choose the first option to run DB9
    -Right click the Hard Disk (click above the partitions)
    -Click Update MBR
    -Apply your changes

    You can also run 'Fixmbr' from the Windows XP/2003 Recovery Console, or 'bootrec /fixmbr' from the Vista/2008/7 Console. Step-by-step instructions can easily be found online.

    The Standard CD is included in all Editions and is created by installing the application in Windows and running the Recovery Media Builder. WinPE is included with Professional Edition (not including Free Editions or Giveaways) and above and is delivered as a seperate download in an EXE package; run the file to launch the Unpack & Burn Wizard and follow the steps to burn the bootable disc.

    Is the Backup Capsule still present on the disk or was that removed during the uninstall as it should have been?
