|Hello again. Sorry about your injury, but very glad to hear you're recovering.|
I'm also glad that Revo Uninstaller solved your problem.
Back before 2005, when you bought a new computer, you were given a few CDs from the manufacturer. One had the operating system, another had the default device drivers, and you perhaps got a few more with bonus software. Starting around 2005, computer manufacturers wanted to make it easier on themselves, so they created recovery partitions on the computer. It saves them time and money. The result is that you're supposed to be able to use the recovery partition (instead of locating those CDs) to revert the computer back to factory defaults.
Recovery partitions are the norm these days. Some manufacturers still send out discs if you request, but you'll likely have to pay for them. As a plus, some manufacturers install software that encourages you to create your own recovery discs at the very beginning of using the computer. If not, their are a plethora of programs to help you do it.
In short, don't modify the recovery partition.
Apologies if I don't respond to your reply immediately. I don't check this site daily, but you're welcome to PM me as a reminder.
