    A small problem, but vexing. I just downloaded TweakUI (to my desktop) from MS, ran the wizard to install it. I tried to open it from the start menu, but was told that "The item 'TweakUI.exe' that this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly." I did a search for TweakUI.exe and came up with nothing. What did I do wrong? It's not a matter of life and death, but stuff like this bugs me.

    I'm thinking something went wrong in the install. Do you have the right one for your Win version for sure?
    If so I would try to install it again.

    First off, what O/S are you running? If you have W98 or W2K, it's in Control Panel. If you have WXP, it's a normal EXE and is installed in \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\TWEAKUI.EXE

    I finally got it. After trying to install three times, I deleted it, redownloaded, and everything was fine. Interesting that the start menu icon was a different, more vivid color on the second install. Thanks for the input.
