Getting rid of/bypassing offline O&O Defrag.. Fixes not working. Help, please!
I'm not sure if people tend to check the Stickied threads (I know I tend to) so thought I'd repost into my own thread.
I really need help on this issue, so am sorry if it's too much. Admins please delete if needs.
My original post:
In regards to;
Apologies, first time poster here. I registered as I am at a dead end and your forum seems to be the most intelligent that I have read.
Nekrosoft, I am having the problem you detailed with O&O Defrag in offline mode and I followed your instructions; I went in via Safemode, went to Run -> services.msc and set O&O Defrag (there was only one option that I could see) to Manual.
I then rebooted and get the same black screen of nothingness.
I then tried setting it to Disabled, still get the black screen.
Choosing 'Last Known' through Safemode still warrants the black screen.
I cannot go in and uninstall O&O in Safemode, obviously... Well that I know how to anyways (was going through Control Panel -> Programs).
I'm going nuts here, with no idea of what to do next to get my PC running as per normal, and have a bundle of photography work I need to be working on..!!
If anyone could offer any help please, it would be MUCH appreciated!
Windows 7 64bit. O&O Defrag 11.5+.
Am happy to just uninstall O&O and be done with it if that would work.
Hell, can I go in via command prompt and just delete the O&O directory? Or would that just create more problems?
Thanks all. Please ask any questions you think necessary.
Thanks all for any help. I reeeeally need to get into the PC without having to format.. >.<

I was put on to SafeMSI (safemsi.exe) which activated Windows Services, which in turn allowed me to uninstall O&O. Or similar such.
