Microsoft has a page about this issue:

Microsoft Acquires Winternals (July 17, 2006)

Winternals offerings are no longer available for purchase. However, Microsoft is exploring integrating these technologies into future offerings. Technical support for Winternals’ offerings will continue to be available according to the terms of customer agreements that have not been terminated or modified, or on a paid per incident basis.

Recovery Manager, Defrag Manager, Protection Manager:

The functionality and usage scenarios of many of these products may be addressed by Microsoft offerings. Current Microsoft offerings can be seen at

So Winternals Recovery Manager is no longer available as a standalone product.

Thank you...Can you point me on a software that can help me access a dead win2003 because of a boo.ini issue ? – Jonatan Apr 28 '11 at 8:13
@Jonatan: If you want to access and recover your files, you can use a Live Linux CD. If you want to fix the boot.ini issue, you should ask this in a new question. – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Apr 28 '11 at 8:45
