    Refresh option HELP


    I create Custom Refresh Image in Windows 8, but later I create Image using Windows 7 File Recovery with complete system backup. I dont need Custom Refresh Image any more and I want to set image that is created by windows when I install it. I want to have option to refresh system without recovering installed programs (I want to have Refresh option to be like in moment I install Windows 8, before creating custom image). I hope someone understand what I want to do becouse my english is very bad.

    Hello cicmildjordje,

    The tutorial below can help show you how to deregister the custom refresh recovery image to have Windows 8 use it's default refresh instead.
