uninstallation problem

Post by unknownplayer »

hi fellas... i tried to uninstall rainmeter but it keeps coming back after i restart the pc.. not only the program relaunch, the folders i deleted in junk box come back and even the setup file i deleted comes back to desktop.. its like a recover mode backup... please help otherwise i will have to format the brand new pc i just bought.. its so annoying

ps: i tried the instructions for uninstall problems... uninstalled and deleted the remaining files manually.. setup an uninstall program to seek and destroy all files related.. yet still the same result.. im about to go insane

I don't see how this is in any way possible, unless you are running Windows in some form of "Sandbox" mode, where changes you make are discarded when the computer reboots. I don't see this as having anything to do with Rainmeter as such, you need to investigate your Windows setup a bit.'

Sandbox, either from Windows or some other 3rd-party software you are running, is the only thing that makes any sense based on your description, but I'd be shocked if you are running in that kind of mode and are unaware of it.
