    I was just over at the classic shell forums poking around and i saw thread over there that says not to use third part uninstallers. But i did i used Revo i don't see why not to use it as Revo uses the normal programs uninstaller and then just allows you to remove its leftovers. Do you think i should re-install it and then remove it with its own uninstaller or do you think its ok.

    I use Revo all the time, it is more efficient in removing the programs entirely including the leftovers usually left by the conventional uninstall methods.

    Cool i will leave it as is, i had a question for you on the windows start screen i use to be able to grab the start screen and move it, but i don't seem to be able to anymore, just individual programs, did MS change this in the last round of updates?

    Nothing has changed from the last group of updates in that regard. Are you keeping the left click depressed when you want to change position?
