Might booting using antivirus rescue disks or images in USBs help?

As you said, if it goes wrong, I can do a clean install. Absolute no problem.
I even have back up, so a lost test does no keep me awake during nights .

I learn and gain from it.

It would be nice, if Revo Unistaller also could remove installed updates, so that there's no leftovers back.

Conclution, if it goes chrash, I can start over, so I will fiddle a bit more

Ok, well done, just be sure to regularly make restore points, system images and Disk Restores.

Also did you clean the hard drive with Clean All or just install over the current OS/

@koolkat77

I'm so greatfull that you ask me, many thanks

No, I didn't found a solution, and I'm still running with the same setup here.
Normally I run Firefox, but for some threads, I need IE.

It will finally happen, that I reinstall W7U.

Thanks again
