Since you used a slipstreamed Windows 7 w/SP1, this may be why you are having this issue.

Sure thing Shaun
Im gonna wait until the iso is released and create a new sp1 disk. Im almost positive now the backup files are not there so there must be an error somewhere with Rt Lite at the point it should remove the files before finalising the slipstreamed iso.I remember the program did appear unresponsive on a couple of occasions whilst slipstreaming.
At least i can say ive had a go and to the most part it worked

Thanks all

The first rounds of slipstreaming SP1 are bound to have a few bugs in it. At least you had fun with it though.

Hi Brink

I had a really teribble experience of slipstreaming..RT 7 displayed it integrated successfully..when I tried it on my main system it got stuck in expanding files.So I have lost my hope in RT 7

Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit)

And how do you remove the entry from Control Panel > Programs and Features > Installed Updates?
The cleanup tool doesn't remove it.

Windows 7x64 Home Premium SP1

I gained extra disk space after the SP1 install this way. But found that
sfc /scannow did not detect any file errors before the removal but did file fixes after the removal.
So I suggest running sfc /scannow after doing the disk cleanup.

I made some recent images before installing SP1 so my way of "uninstalling" will be to reimage. I hope I'm not missing something?
