I have tried to use the "help" button under the "support" tab, but to no avail... is this a 5.3 thing or a me thing?
In addition is the option for the traditional view no longer available?
If installed correctly the Help should be available. Please try running the Clean Up Utility and then reinstall TBC 5.30.
Clean Up Utility can be found here:

I have not used the traditional view for years. However I can't see any way of enabling it so I would assume it's not longer available. If I find out for sure I will let you know.
