I am trying to transition a PC from business use to personal use. It takes a long time between Windows start up and a point that it is useable. When it is finally ready a screen pops up with a folder in it that says "Search Enhancement Pack". In it's former life I beliece this PC was used as the server for a small office network. I would like to disable what ever makes this pop up in an effort to reduce the wait time between the time I turn it on and the time I can begin to use the PC.

Click Start > Run > copy and paste the following command:

Code:
regedit /e C:\look.txt "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run"
Click OK.

You will find the report it creates at C:\look.txt. Please open it in Notepad and then copy and paste the report in your next reply.

Please do the same with the following command:

Code:
[B]regedit /e C:\look2.txt "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run"[/B]
This will produce a report at C:\look2.txt. Please copy and paste that report as well.

Is there some reason why you don't just reinstall Windows for your own use? I have found that using machines that were used previously or for other purposes are full of unexpected surprises and it is nice to have your own installation so that you are familiar from the start with any changes it has gone through and what settings have been changed.

I see. If you have an installer for the Office suite, you could retrieve your serial number and install it again. If not, I see what you mean. :D

Click OK.

Copy the Command Prompt output and include it in your next reply.

Well, theoretically, Search Enhancement Pack should be easy to uninstall... :)

Click Start > Run > copy and paste the following command:

msiexec /x {F0E12BBA-AD66-4022-A453-A1C8A0C4D570}

Click OK.
