Windows 7: Accidentally deleted my recovery partion

Oh! OK, GokAy, thanks. ( Someday I would like to visit Ephesus, Cappadocia, Pamukkale, Aspendos Theatre etc., if I have enough time left in my clock and stamina )

@DudeClayton, If you have installaed some time-limited trial software, as GokAy stated you do not do a Factory Restore to remove it. View Computer, Click on Uninstall or change a program and from the list select that program and click on Uninstall that appears on top. This will use the Program's Uninstaller to uninstall it.

Better you install Revo Uninstaller Free version and uninstall your program from the list of installed programs shown by it. It can remove some of the Registry entries and also folders leftover by the Program's Uninstaller. Read the help file on how to do it. ( To remove the leftover registry entries after it scans, you have to select those and click on Delete on the left hand bottom before going on to the next screen by clicking the Command for that on the right hand side. Even experienced users miss this. So watch out every screen and the commands in it. Don't worry. You will learn by doing. Nobody taught me.)

I guess you misunderstood again

From what I gather it is the original AV that came with the laptop which is most likely time-limited. And doing a factory restore would (?) restore it's original functionality. So, the reason for the restore is not to remove the AV but to fool it to continue using same AV. We can't be sure until OP comes back and tell us about it though.

NoelDP, quick question -- those who have Windows 7 64-bit, do they have to have Revo Uninstaller Pro [which is for both 32 & 64], or, can they for the most common installs/uninstalls get by with Revo Free [which is 32 only]?

But RolandJS is forcing me to poke my nose in again - though I amn't NoelDP :)

That is a good question anyway.

Well, Revo Uninstaller free is not 64bit compatible but it will still list all the 32 bit programs and these can still be uninstalled with it. It will not list native 64bit programs. In this case use the Windows Uninstaller (Uninstall or change a program) - unless you wish to buy the pro version.:)

On my Windows7 64 bit lappy the freeware version listed 41 programs, whereas the pro version listed 61 programs.

Revo Free version: Found - 41

Revo Pro version: Found - 61

jumanji, your nose along with the rest of your face is welcome anytime, anywhere! And, thanks for the reminder about Revo free & Pro, it made things a little clearer for me. I did get the Pro version awhile back.

Just a reminder that the install restored by the Recovery Partition is the worst install of Win7 one can have, larded with bloatware and duplicate utilities that interfere with better versions built into Win7. For this reason most tech enthusiasts will not keep such an install but instead prefer to Clean Reinstall Windows 7 which offers the very best install of Win7 one can have.
