    Hello, All ---

    Running Win2k Pro with SP3 on a standalone PC. Had been using Personalized Menus for both Programs and Favorites for some time w/o problems until now.

    Ran MRU-Blaster 1.3 three days ago; first time I ever ran program. Immediately, Personalized Menus stopped working and have not functioned since no matter what I try.

    Please help!! Need those Personalized Menus to work again!

    Thanks to all.

    MRU-Blaster cleared the data of what programs you had recently used. The data will be recreated as you use your computer (in fact, it probably already is being recreated). The effects, however, are not instantaneous:

    If you wish for MRU-Blaster to not clear these lists, you should uncheck the following option in the Settings window (MRU-Blaster will still scan for and clean everything else):
    -Windows UserAssist MRUs

    This should prevent the clearing of those lists.

    P.S. For anyone else following this thread, it should be noted that the same thing happens on Windows XP - the UserAssist MRUs contain information on the most frequently used programs. Windows XP uses this information to create its "smart" start menu.

    Hello, Sir ---

    Thank you for your advice. You were right on. The personalized menus have returned and work fine. I made the adjustment to MRU Blaster as you advised to prevent the problem from recurring.

    Thanks again for your help.
