I'm sorry if I came across as being a dick in my last post. I have heard over and over "Why change to Windows 8" each time it was with a snide remark as if I was stupid. My apology goes out to Guapoa. I took your post as one of the snide remarks.

Windows 8 although it has a lot of trouble. I like the idea of the apps. Especially free ones. It is very similar to the iOs products from Apple.

After I downloaded the Windows 8 update twice it got rid of the eco mode.

I thank everyone for their help. Once again sorry Guapoa

May I ask why you want Windows 8? A lot of people, including IT professionals don't like it.

Im at a lose here. My question was how to delete the program. Not answer questions as to why I wanted Windows 8. I have my own reasons and I don't give a s... about alot of people and IT Professionals. I believe if someone asked you the same question you would answer the same.

Try downloading the eco-mode setup file from Samsung's website. Some setup files offer an "uninstall" feature when run.

If the installer does not allow this, then try re-installing it and hopefully the uninstall feature will be restored to add/remove programs

If a program is not shown in Remove Programs window, it is hidden by the manufacturer. You must make it visible. This is how:

Open Regedit and go to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

Under Uninstall on the left pane, there are many entries. These are the entries that appear in Remove Programs window.

Left-click each entry and its contents will appear on the right pane.

If the contents on the right pane include a value named NoRemove with a data of 1, it is not seen in the Remove Programs window.

Now continue left-clicking each entry under Uninstall on the left pane and read the name of the program on the right pane until you find "Samsung Eco Mode".

It must have a NoRemove value with data 1. Make it 0. After reboot ( maybe no need to reboot ), it should appear in Remove Programs window.

If your Win 7 is 64-bit, then you must also look for Samsung Eco Mode in registry HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall.

Caution: If you are uneasy with Registry Editing, then you may consider getting help from a knowledgeable friend. If you mess with registry, you cannot reboot your computer, let alone upgrade to Windows 8.

In any case, if such a thing happens, you clean-install Windows 8. No problem. In this case, you must install applications and drivers from Samsung web site. Most drivers come with Windows 8 or with Windows Update, by the way.

"I have my own reasons and I don't give a s... about alot of people and IT Professionals."

guapo asked a reasonable question, you don't have to be a d!ck.

You said you're "trying to upgrade to Windows 8" so I'm guessing you're trying to do an in-place upgrade from Win7? You would be much better off if you were to completely wipe the HDD of all partitions, create new partitions, format, then install Win8 from scratch.

I did a clean installation of Windows 8 on my Toshiba and it worked fine. But my wife wanted to keep everything on her Samsung laptop, so I used the keep-everything option with her (although I tried to talk her out of it). I ran into the same problem with the installer asking me to remove Samsung Eco Mode. I couldn't find anywhere in the registry to do that although I found a couple of Eco Mode entries. Finally I used Advanced System Care's Uninstaller tool to do a "forced uninstall" of Eco Mode and it worked great. Thanks go to IObit for their product.
