Just dloaded, installed and run the CC cleaner..Quite a comprehensive program for a freebee!! Unfortunately it did not clear the Ten Thumbs "leftovers". Deleted my passwords (LOL).

Thanks for the suggestion.

Did you try the registry fixer? Something could be left over in the registry. Only a suggestion.

Yes. I used Windows 7 manager and the "search for Ten Thumbs in the registry". As you may have read I also tried CC Cleaner. We think we have problems with Alquada, this is far more serious (LOL)

Yes, I did that too. What I need is someone to install Ten Thumbs and see where it stores the students info at the same time someone to give me a million dollars! The chance of either is very remote!! My wife and I went to the USA a while ago. Loved it too.

It is also a Hidden Files and Folders - Show or Hide

I just installed it on a VM and there is a folder there with a save.rev file in it.

I did that last night, can't help you with the million though.

There is a student cache file in the documents folder also.

Hi, or Eureka! Got the answer from Ten Thumbs. FYI here it is:

There are 3 places Ten Thumbs stores files:

C:/Program Files/Ten Thumbs Typing Tutor 4.7

The "Ten Thumbs Students" folder in My Documents (this will delete all student files and lose all progress records so if you are planning to re-install you may not want to delete this folder)

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Ten Thumbs Typing Tutor

This will completely remove Ten Thumbs from your computer.
Thanks and good luck.
