See add the end of this posting.
Ok, I build a new installation and published it.

Possible reasons:
- several pspp versions installed on top of each other
- data files in de program directories
- delete the pspp directorie with it's content

I used the old toolset. So the problem will be back as soon as I update.

Would you mind mailing  me the file on (for WindowsXP) c:\documents
and settings\<your user>\..recently-used.xbel
With this file I may be can reproduce the problem so I can find what is wrong.

Have fun

A rewritten description  of the tests (should be done with the
20101030 version) is:

test 1)
go to  | start | all programs | bureau assecoires | Command prompt | and type
   del %userprofile%\.recently-used.xbel
   mkdir %userprofile%\.recently-used.xbel
close the Command prompt and check if PSPP works now.
This is maybe a temporary workaround but it could interfere with other programs.
After finishing the test
go to  | start | all programs | bureau assecoires | Command prompt | and type
    rd %userprofile%.recently-used.xbel
and close the command prompt .

test 2)
Find the PSPP program directory. Most likely C:\program files\PSPP
Open ..\PSPP\share\themes\MS-Windows\GTK2-0\gtkrc with wordpad and add the lines
  gtk-recent-files-limit = 0
  gtk-recent-files-max-age = 0
as the first 2 lines in
Test if PSPP works now
