Windows Live Onecare Uninstall Problem RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I needed to unintall Windows Live OneCare.  After going throught the control  panel and uninstalling Live OneCare, I rebooted this XP machine,  After the restart, I accessed Startup - Programs and discovered all the programs listed in under Programs had disappeared including the quick start programs.  The programs were present prior to the uninstall.

     

    I had not backed up the registry in the last 20 days.  Any solutions to add the programs backin to Programs?

  • I'd recommend rebooting again. It sounds like the default profile may have loaded instead of your own. Another possibility, though less likely, is that the registry has indeed gotten corrupted. If a reboot doesn't help and a system restore (which will restore the registry) doesn't solve it (followed by another attempt to reinstall), please contact support.

    I'm moving your post to the General folder.
