Have lost all Most Recently Run programs on Start Menu
by jepoore - 4/3/12 4:48 AM
I have a Toshiba Tablet, circa 2006. Runs well. XP of course. Service Pack 3. Plenty of ram. Up to date with MS Updates. Started out as Home and Student has for a long time reported Professional after buying disk and installing MS Office. Recently I downloaded 2 programs Index.dat and MRU blaster. I like these programs but apparently I didn't pay enough attention to all that was being deleted, or it could be for a completely unknown reason my Most recently run programs in the Start menu have dissappeared.
Here's what I have tried so far:
Going back to older Restore No
TweakUI setting to correct it. No
Registry attempt to correct it. Nope
a MSI file from MS to correct it . Nada
Going to Start and Taskbar Properties.
Switching to Classic and then back. Re-
setting the number to 0, then clearing
the list then setting back to 3
Does anyone have a solution. I guess I can live with it but I know somewhere someone is sharp enough to have an answer.
Thanks so much in advance! jack
