    Just asking for a friend who has FDISR installed and after a week decided that it was NOT for him. Even after Uninstallation. the Pre-boot Screen still comes on during next Bootup. I am still very New to FDISR, so I cannot advise him, any suggestion, Plzzzzz. Thanks.

    Hmm. Never seen this. He might try reinstalling, and then uninstalling, and seeing if the result is the same.

    Did he uninstall in a different way, some other uninstall utility?
    I wonder if reinstall will help, since FD-ISR will save and restore the current MBR. That won't help.
    I suggest to write a standard MBR with the Windows XP bootfix or mbrfix.

    I'd still try the install uninstall routine first. Some other stuff is still left on his system, or the mbr wouldn't have anything to point at. 2ndly I'd contact Raxco or where the software came from just to make sure he isn't making a bad situation worse.

    Try installing once again and choose uninstall option and while the uninstallation screen apppears choose the second option which says uninstall the program and all its contents...etc...

    That should do job .... however if not try fixmbr from your xp CD....

    However pls tell us what did the FDISR folks had to suggest you

    After re-installing, I would disable pre-boot, then uninstall using the uninstaller.
