Solved Uninstall Windows Recovery Console : Cannot delete C:cmdcons folder

Post by Iris on Thu Jan 08, 2009 5:25 pm

Recently I installed Windows Recovery Console on XP as suggested in order to remove some trojan and worms infection. Now that the problem is solved, I want to remove the Recovery Console ( http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555032 ). But I cannot delete the C:\cmdcons folder, and received this message instead:

"Cannot delete 1394BUS.SY_ : Access denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write protected and that the file is not currently in use."

When I checked, the 1394BUS.SY_ file is the first file in the folder. I also found that I can neither move nor delete any files in the C:\cmdcons folder and received error messages almost the same as above.

I've tried deleting the C:\cmdcons folder in Safe Mode but I still receive the same error message.

Any idea?

Why are you trying to remove it anyway?
If something happens to your machine, the recovery console will help.

Hi Belahzur. Thank you for replying.

It's just that I don't want to accidentally enter the Recovery Console during boot up and then messed up my computer. I am careless like that. So it will be better for me if my computer automatically start XP during boot up.

If I can't uninstall the Recovery Console, is there a way to make my computer to automatically start XP like before?

It automatically starts XP, just has another menu and it only shows that for maybe half a second?

If possible, I would rather not to take the chances. But if there's no way of deleting the folder, I guess I would have to live with it

Easy.....

Open a command prompt, type in msconfig and hit enter.

Manually delete the Recovery Console entry in the boot.ini tab of system configuration.

Problem Solved.
