Hello, I do not think that it is possible to restore the list.
What you can do is create your list and it will stay there even after you use the 'cleaning' software.
Go to: Start - All Programs - choose your favorite program and right click on it. Menu will appear and click
on 'Pin to Start menu'.
Do it for all programs you like.
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
