in your findandrunrobot.ini of the FARR distribution you find following entries.
I think the renchler entries should be removed or?

1=100>>>C:\Documents and Settings\renchler\Recent
2=75>>>C:\Documents and Settings\renchler\Desktop
3=100>>>C:\Documents and Settings\renchler\Start Menu

those should def not be there - those really should be pointing to YOUR documents - i must have inadvertantly provided an ini file with some values filled in.  i'll fix in next update.

i noticed it too. but as i opened the installer with winrar, i just drag-n-dropped the exe & chm files only - keeping all my old settings.

on another note, that's why i usually wish that authors put out extractable installers. it gives me more control when updating since involves overwriting one or two files only. :)

ah i see the issue - i've been packing a settings ini by mistake but its not actually "installed" by the installer, so its not like it was erasing anyone's settings.  but those of you who unpack the files manually were seeing it - good thing you were aware enough not to overwrite your existing settings.
