Remove Two Items From Start Menu

Nov 25, 2007

I had added a couple of free standing applications and I cannot remove them no matter what I try. I cannot even rename them. I have tried changing the application location and then clicking on the Start Menu item so that I get an error message. The message asks whether I want to remove the item from the Start Menu and I click yes but that too does not work. I am tired of looking through the registry and cannot find anything relevant.

Classic Start Menu / Way To Remove Or Edit Words

Jun 19, 2005

Is there a way to remove and/or edit the words: Windows XP Home Edition from the left side of the Classic Start menu? I did it with Windows 98. If I remember correctly, I had to create a new BMP file of certain dimensions, and use Adobe Photoshop to create a layer of vertical text, give the new file the same name as the old one, change the extension for the old file, and put the new one in the same location. Is the method for the Classic Start menu in Windows XP the same.

Changing That Default Choice?

Mar 2, 2005

Does anyone know how to changing that default choice? I want an administrator account and a public account. In the public account I don't want any right-clicking, changing desktop icons, things like this. I also want all of the things left on the desktop (downloads, shortcuts, etc.) to be gone when they log out. I did look at group policy editor but I don't like it. So I put System Policy Editor on it from a Windows Server 2000 CD.I have a .POL file made already and can't get it to work. Any websites on this would also be great.

Installed Pro Over Home / Still See Start-up Choice

Oct 13, 2009

I was running Win XP Home SP3 when it had a problem. This became fatal due to an IER flaw (Idiot Editing Registry.) Having no idea where my original disc was, I purchased and installed XP Pro SP3. Everything is fine except for the minor irritant that on every start up I am given the choice to start either Pro or Home version.I could probably do the one extra mouse click on a million boots for less trouble that it will take to fix it, but it just offends my compulsive sensibilities. Any suggestions on how to make it go to XP Pro without intervention? I have tried uninstallers and none of them see the Home version. I have deleted all the Home version files, which may have been dumb. I thought about a registry cleaner, but decided to ask before I got myself in trouble.

Choice Between Home / Media Center Or PRO

Jan 1, 2007

I am working with my son to build a new computer. We need to decide which Microsoft operating system to buy / install. We have a new ASUS motherboard and an Intel Pentium D 3.4GHz (dual core 64 bit). We also have a PCI express 16 graphics card. His primary use is gaming and also MS office applications for school.I have pretty much ruled out XP Pro 64 because I am reading about lack of application and driver support, but open to input on this.We need to choose between XP home, XP Media center, or XP pro (all 32 bit). I am not particularly concerned about Vista upgrade, although I do understand the upgrade path from XP Media includes the full graphical interface improvements in Vista Aero, and the upgrade from XP Home does not.

Start Menu/Programs Fly Out Menu List

Jul 28, 2005

I am using Windows XP/SP2 a newish computer and some things changed from how it used to be.From the *Start* Button, there is the further button *Programs*. This then has the fly-out menu which used to open only the most recently accessed programs. Typically, after a boot it would show the items which opened in *Start-Up*, the rest were accessible only by hovering the mouse cursor over a button showing downward pointing arrows (more chevron like). This would then open the entire sub menu of programs to choose from. However, in the past week it now opens in that expanded view all the time. There is no sign of the little arrows anymore, and I always end up with a screen full of program lists whenever I go to Start/Programs.
