Apology and question

First, my apologies to the group for being such a nuisance.

I've always (literally always in terms of PCs) had good access to
the computer. Directories, program listings with locations, etc. etc.

Now I'm in the midst of trying to learn both Win 7 (my new computer)
and Win 8 (my wife's new computer) and the lack of access to stuff
has gotten to me.

My Win 7 machiune came with something (actually asware) called
"MyPC Backup". Actually there's a program involved (which is
largely a nag process to "remind me: to use MyPC Backuo"
(which is actually an internet service to which one uses for
storing the backups.)
Revo Uninstaller doesn't "see" it. So, how can I get rid of it?
The constant nagging is annoying.
Thank you fior any ideas.

If we're going to start apologizing for being a nuisance, there are a lot of
people who should probably get in line ahead of you, including me. ;-)

I don't know how it may factor into the MyPC Backup program, but Windows
7 and 8 will nag you about setting up a backup schedule when it's first
installed from scratch. That's what happened here when I built my
computer. I don't know if that happens if the computer is bought
retail, aka Dell, HP, etc.

One thing to watch for on OEM Win7 installs (like my laptop),
is an OEM-provided backup program installation, can damage
the Windows 7 built-in backup stuff. Even if removed, the
removal process may not put back the triggers that Windows 7 needs.

From a command prompt, you can try these as a way to access
the built-in Windows 7 backups.

sdclt /configure
sdclt /configure /target

On Windows 8, the Windows 7 backup scheme is deprecated.
It is still available, if you can find it.

On Windows 8.1, it's much worse. There, the sdclt seems
to be missing. In its place, they want us to execute bizarre
commands that the sdclt would have done for us.

For example, this would back up SYSTEM RESERVED and C: , as the
two of them are "critical" to system operation (booting). My
drive N: holds the backup.

wbAdmin start backup -backupTarget:N: -allCritical

But there are other things you can do with the utility, that
I can't even remember what these examples are for. I
think the first one here, is equivalent to the previous
more succinct command.

Wbadmin start backup -backupTarget:F: -include:\\?\Volume{C38A95FE-9261-11E1-92E9-806E6F6E6963}\,C: -quiet

wbAdmin start backup -backupTarget:E: -include:C:,D:,F: -allCritical -quiet

The reference to Volume{C38A95FE-9261-11E1-92E9-806E6F6E6963} is
a means to get at SYSTEM RESERVED, which doesn't have a drive letter.
The "allCritical" option, is a way to avoid having to figure out
the identifier for SYSTEM RESERVED.

Backups are loads of fun.

I didn't get this with my W7/W8 machines, so it's probably your ISP's
"service". Or else the manufacturer made a deal with whoever MyPC Backup
actually is. I doubt that it can be gotten rid of that easily. Since
it's a cloud service, there need not be an actual program on your
machine, just a link that's invoked whenever you start the browser (or
Explorer). There may be a registry reference. Back up the registry, the
use regedit to find that reference, and delete it. You may be able to
get rid of it using a anti-malware that finds spyware, adware, etc.

Good luck.

Do a Google search for 'MyPCBackup removal'. You can remove that
program using control panel>Programs and Features>uninstall
MyPCBackup. IIRC, the free version of Revo Uninstaller does not see 64
bit programs. Not sure if MyPCBackup is 64 bit but that may be why
Revo doesn't show it.

If you have problems uninstalling with Windows control panel>Programs
and Features>uninstall, try this link that explains the manual removal
process:

There is a list of things to check for MyPCBackup here.
It's possible it has its own Service loaded, which can be
seen in a registry entry near the bottom. Perhaps that
is part of the nagging.
