Hey all. Thanks in advance for any help.
After running HDD Regenerator on an external drive with some bad sectors, it seemed to fix that
drive & is usable.
But Now....i cannot get rig of the HDD Regenerator program popping up at startup & every time I turn on
or pluggin an external drive !?!
I have un-installed it, Run CCleaner, deleted everything I can find related to it in the registry, tried
disabling it in the start up menu....but nothing seems to stop this Beast from popping up its
"Install Wizard" & blocking my Hard Drives from opening properly.
Any ideas? Also, Since I used this app...none of my hard drive are accessible via "My Computer"
every time I try to open them....I get the "Command Prompt Window" .
The particular PC I am having the problems with is not virus infected & has Never seen a second on the
internet & has been running perfectly until I installed this HDD Regenerator.
I really hate this little nasty app!!

Thanks for any advise.

Cheers,
Nath

Try installing the program again. Then use revo uninstaller to remove it.

msiexec.exe is part of the windows installer. That's probably not what's actually running. Download winpatrol. Check the active tasks tab, and try to find the program in there. The info button will tell you where it's located.
