I have a problem with uninstalling IBM Rapid Restore PC.
I've installed it with no problems but the partition is too big so i
wan't to uninsrtall it.
I want to uninstall it but the programe isn't in a list of programs in
Add/Remove programs (Start - Control panel - ADD/Remove programs). In a
help menu of this programme is written that it can be uninstalled from
a start menu (Start - All Programs - ... - Uninstall RRPC) but there
isn't anything in Start menu.
So HOW to uninstall it?
And another question
Instead of recovery CD computer came with a hidden partition in which
is recovery CD so my question is will I have IBM predesktop area and
hidden recovery CD after I uninstall Rapid restore PC?
I have IBM ThinkPad R40e with XP Home SP1 which was made in 2004.
Besty wishes from

I have the same problem... I think when I upgraded it a few months ago, it
took away my abilities to uninstall it.

My intention is to do a system restore off of the hidden partition, which
will take me back to before I upgraded RR... and hope that I can uninstall
it from that point... Otherwise It's system rebuild time...

But maybe someone has a better way to ditch the extra bits in the hidden
partition without taking out the original IBM stuff?  Since I don't have
system CD's, I'm scared to mess in the hidden partion too much.
