    I allowed TI11 to install the Startup Recovery Manager in my Vista system and it is now taking the PC a full 5 minutes to boot, screen completely blank.

    Is there any way I can reverse this, it's driving me up the wall!

    Hmm ... surprised no one answered yet. Try removing the Secure Zone and see if the SRM will also be removed. I don't use the SZ so I'm not sure if this will work.

    That's the way to do it. It will work. Any backups in the zone will be lost. A design fault?

    mmm, that's the first thing I did, but the boot problem remains...

    EDIT - this comp is an XP/Vista dual boot. I just booted it into XP, and rebooted back to Vista and Vista started in seconds, so problem solved. I'm assuming that removing the SZ was the key, but it also required this extra step.

    Just another idiosyncrasy of True Image. It's full of them. :)
