    We had Partition Manager 9.0 installed on a Windows 2003 SBS server for a couple years, but we uninstalled it several months ago. However, everytime we reboot the server, it takes 2-3 hours for the server to come back up. It runs through Partion Manager routines, and there isn't any way to safely interrupt the process. Outside of the Paragon drive backup software, there isn't another Paragon program currently installed. We recently had to reboot the server during the work day - big mistake. Is there any way to clean this up and stop the server from going through the process? Thanks

    Hard to tell from your description - but it sounds like the paragon boot time mode is still active.

    You can remove that by rewriting the mbr executable code.

    Virtually all partition managers will have a function called - rebuild mbr, or rewrite mbr , or similar - that is what they do.

    There is an exe that comes with nt6 o/s called bootsect.exe which also does it - no idea what comes with xp based systems - there must be something similar in the recovery console.

    or you could use Pauly's Bootice - remove the txt extension from this and it is inside the zip file: BOOTICE.zip.txt
