"Customize Classic Start Menu" [Clear] freezes...


R

RJK

XP Home SP3+

The "Customize Classic Start Menu" window, when I click the [Clear] button,
to clear the list of recently accessed documents, causes that menu box to
stop responding, and I end up clicking the top right x and then clicking
the "End Now" button, and then the Desktop reloads.

I've tried two registry fixes from Kelly's corner which didn't fix it,
"Start Button and Taskbar repair," and re-registered the *.dll's for
explorer .exe
...and I ran a shell repair ...no go !

Have been trying all day to track down the source of atdmt cookies that
keep appearing, having tried all sorts to block them, have a feeling I
shall end up posting a hjt log somewhere soon.

Any thoughts muchly appreciated,

I'm off to bed !

regards, Richard

Thank you for your timely response. Been sitting here three weeks just
wondering whether or not to trust that site.

I'm always suspicious of websites where the English is poor, punctuation is
weird, and words are unnecessarily capitalized. Also, there seems to be no
mention of who the woman is whose photo appears on the site and on the blog.
Anybody who does this for a living, especially if they're an MS MVP would
surely list their name.

If you're such a hotshot, why don't you post your name, contact information,
or even a valid address. I'm sorry, but "void.com" is not good enough. Post
some VALID qualifying information. Any REAL Microsoft MVP posts their true
identity and a way to reach them.

I also note that the downloads on your site point to numbered, servers that
don't resolve to any names or locations. This is not a good sign, either.

In short, I wouldn't trust your website for any pupose.

Participants in the Microsoft MVP program have worked hard to develop a
history of trustworthiness. It somehow seems fitting that TRT would try
to use the hard work of others to further its own agenda, since this is
also how it gets its programs (claiming others' work as its own).

Regarding the "poor English" - much of the *best* technical information
on the net is written in broken English.

Yeah, it seems that a large percentage of experts or the most
knowledgeable people ARE from foreign non-English native language
nations. The same holds true for Linux and other OSs.
That does not, however, excuse those whose native language IS English
and their poor grammar and writing, though per most info, the general
scale is around 8th grade reading and comprehension skills with even
lower writing abilities [around 6th grade]. For instance: I must limit
my writing style to 12th grade level [in formal documents] or even
college graduates and supposed professionals get lost; and this is not
meant as anything more than a plain statement of fact [born out in the
courts], e.g., it is not a derogatory comment nor bragging.

No reputable person will tell you to trust anything from PCBUTTS1.COM,
it's known and proven to contain pirated works from others as well as
hacked works from others.

I normally avoid correcting people's spelling, grammar, or usage
errors, but considering what you've said here, let me point out two
things:

1. That last phrase in parentheses should be "borne out in court."

2. The "e.g." in that last sentence should be "i. e."

....and I suppose a purist would insist on the either/or pairing -
neither nor in this case.

I usually don't comment on such things because my own language usage is
far from perfect. My point was that many legitimate websites would be
suspicious looking if proper language usage was the only gauge. Many of
Microsoft's own pages could use proofreading.

Right! I missed that.

I usually don't comment on such things because despite not being
perfect myself, it's simply rude. I commented in this case only
because I was commenting on the English of a commenter.

Yep!
