View Full Version : TweakUI Paranoia still evading me



22-07-2001, 04:16 PM
I installed TweakUI 1.2 from my Windows 98 disc but it has no 'paranoia' button, I tried installing 1.33 from the network but it asks for the disk which I do not have. How can I get round it and get to the Paranoia box? All I want to do is delete the history from the Find All Files 'named' box.

'installing...from the network'?????

simply download it, unzip id if need be then right click the 'tweakui.inf' file and click on 'install' in the menu. ive never had tweakui ask for the disk before.

As Tweak'e mentioned, download it from the net, try this PC World site:

http://www.pcworld.co.nz/pcworld/pcw.nsf/UNID/36FA048AF41EA5AECC256A07007626ED?OpenDocument&Highlight=2,tweak

The main thing that catches people out in installing it is that you right click the .inf file and select 'install'. This puts it in your control panel.

Follow the instructions and away ya go ... no more paranoia (by the way I can see over your shoulder .... just kidding)

I know this sounds daft, bear with me. The current version of TweakUI on my system has 3 layers of tabs at the top of the window. A previous version had tabs including paranoia off to the right out of sight and I had to scroll to get there. Could that be your problem?

...or, to save yourself the hassle of downloading another version of TweakUI and fiddling around with it (if all you wish to do is delete your 'Find all Files' and other personal history lists - ??) you could try the following:

Right click on an empty space in the Quick Launch Bar (adjacent to the Start button) > click Properties > open the 'Start Menu Programmes' tab > then click 'Clear' on the Documents button. Done.

Cheers!!!
