    MRP v126 is at RC4 stage now and very close to completion :)

    Added a new option (General) : 'Theme Settings' desktop CT menu, this will have simple items such as Desktop Icons, Sound, Screen Saver etc - the items will depend on the OS installed, on win 7 there maybe two extra ones for Colors and Backgrounds. They should be auto-translated into the OS's Language but maybe one or two will not and just be called 'Appearance' / 'Color Management' and the other 'Background' / 'Wallpaper' in English -- it depends if that item name can be auto-translated at runtime.

    Most likely will add extra items to that sub-menu at a later time, the ones available are awkward to find under win 8.x/10 such as 'Sounds' and the 'Desktop Icons' so they may be of use to someone.

    As always this may change due to how the OS's evolves and those items may no longer be operative as the control panel is removed.

    *Edit* Starter and ~Basic Editions may have less menu items as they are not available for those specific Editions.

    As mentioned starter and ~~basic editions will not use some items as those theme elements either not exist or cause an error. So i just set a flag if those editions detected and ignore bits.

    Note even w10 starter , which not strictly exist will ignore certain items too.

    MRP 126 is now at Baseline Candidate 1 stage :)

    Hopefully sorted the auto-translation of 'Background' to 'Configuration' (translated)...

    If specific string tables are not present, it should default back to en-us/english and not show any weird text in the menu item names.

    Query Tool v106.0 should hopefully be released later today, if MRP passes this final hurdle then that too will be released within the next 24hrs :)

    Query Tool v106.0 has been uploaded, 2nd post's download link, password and hashes updated. :)

    + When the Query Tool has completed there will be TWO logs saved to the Desktop, one being the usual 'safe to post' version and the new 'PrivateCopy_QTvxxx.xxxxx' log which shows all keys, serial numbers etc - NEVER post this log anywhere as it may contain sensitive data.

    + Updated various routines to be hopefully more efficient and removed some old no longer required code.

    + Added Defrag task{s} statuses, shows if the task{s} are enabled/ready etc.
