BUG: RapidBoot uninstall screwed up Windows 7 on ThinkPad X220

2011-11-21, 18:47 PM

Since my X220 boots as fast without RapidBoot as it does with factory-installed RapidBoot,

and is more usable more quickly without RapidBoot, I decided to leave RapidBoot uninstalled.

 

Since then I've noticed that some important Windows services, most notably Windows Update,

were not working, and found that they were Disabled.

 

While I can't say for sure, I have a strong suspicion that RapidBoot disables these services so

it can start them itself, and that the installer for RapidBoot failed to restore standard behavior

of these services when uninstalling RapidBoot. If true, I think it a serious bug that should be

promptly fixed.

 

Caveat: I was using the factory-installed version of RapidBoot, not the 1.11 update recently

1.11 update recentlyreleased, so I don't know if this issue is addressed in 1.11 or not.

i just uninstalled version 1.11 to test this and the number of processes active immediately after boot didn't change.

 

after uninstalling, windows update service was correctly set for automatic (delayed) start.   watching the specific process showed it disabled upon boot, then enabling itself after about a minute.

 

perhaps you might try installing version 1.11, testing, then uninstalling it to recover any incorrectly-set services.

Installing and uninstalling RapidBoot 1.11 make no change in my services configuration.
