I downloaded a program, Phantom Armor, provided by Giveawayoftheday.com on October 12, 2010.
I then added a password and had access to the program and proceeded to Protect my "C" drive.
The program reboots my OS and viola, my hard drive is protected. Great, but the problem now
is I can't Un-protect my C drive. I've emailed Phantom Armor now numerous times and no answer
from them. My computer is stuck in this Virtual Mode. It makes a virtual copy of your registry.

I have tried downloading the program again to try and uninstall it, but having my computer in
protected mode, it makes no difference. When I reboot, I'm back to square one.
I have tried rebuilding the bootmanager but to no avail. I have no idea what to try now.

If anyone has an idea where the code for this program would be written on my system, I sure
would appreciate any help from the Guru's out there, this has me tearing my hair out. I don't
want to have to reinstall my OS if I really don't need to.

I've never used that program, but judging from the screenshots on their website it is a question of check-marking the drive, selecting Unprotect, and clicking change settings.
