I would like to do a "fresh installation" of FARR.

I did an Advanced Uninstall using Revo Uninstaller.

When I re-installed FARR, I still had my old settings.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks.

This is an excellent question, and shame on me for not providing clear instructions for this  Sad

What you want to do is exit FARR, and then delete the FindAndRunRobot.ini file which will be in the "C:\Program Files\FindAndRunRobot" directory if you are on winxp or lower, or in MyDocuments\DonationCoder\FindAndRunRobot if on Vista or higher.

If you want a completely clean uninstall and reinstall, exit farr, then delete those two folders, and reinstall.

Thanks a million mouser!  FARR beats La*nchy any day, hands down.

I have been experimenting around with FARR these last couple of days and after completing reading its tutorial I was amazed at how comprehensive and customizable it could be.

For the first time, I used GroupAliases.   Grin  They remind of "keywords" in Chrome or Firefox.

I found another really useful piece of software called HotCorners: http://sites.google.com/s...ogramsforpeers/hotcorners

I found this software on this site: http://www.addictivetips.com/

I use it to open my most common folders.

Maybe this can help a fellow shortcut enthusiast like me.

I had installed, and run FARR several months ago, but for some reason, uninstalled it. I've tried to reinstall a fresh download several times now, but when I click on icon to run, I get pop-up "MS Visual C++ Runtime Library, Runtime error, and it closes. Running XP Pro, 2GB RAM. Please assist. Thank you

its almost certainly a plugin problem.
delete any plugins (they wont be uninstalled autoamtically when you uninstall)(.

also you can delete the FindAndRunRobot.ini file to reset all settings.

When I delete an app, I also go to appsdata and remove it, plus check the registry. I left the plugs in directory as I figured to save time upon next installation of FARR. Again, thank you.
