Done that more then once. I have uninstalled and reinstalled FSX3 times. Each time making sure everything (folders, Subfolders, saved games etc') were deleted, and everytime I've activated the product with Microsoft but I still don't have these views.Is there some kind of diagnostices tool that can help ??Thanks

If you have a product like Registry Mechanic it *may* help to run a deep scan after uninstalling FSX to ensure that your registry is clean with no corrupt keys etc residing in it. It may also pay to ensure you uninstall SP1 first and then FSX (at least i do that to guarantee a clean uninstall). Andrew
