Hmmm... uninstall.bat is a work in progress and probably shouldn't have
been included. I suspect that if you rebooted after running
uninstall.bat but before running install.bat you would have had an
unbootable system.

The problem is the way I attach xenhide.sys to the pci bus, which is via
an AddReg in the .inf file. I think some simple .vbs would be able to
clear the registry key and the uninstall.bat file could just call that.

All in all though, I am still uncomfortable with the way I hide the qemu
network and ata drivers from windows, and I keep telling myself that
there must be a better way... everything I try works even worse than
before though :)
