Recently aquired a system running XP Sp2, so far so good, however one slight
niggle, there are some unwanted and some redundant (the programmes referred
to having been uninstalled) items left on the START button right click drop
down menu.

Any ideas on how to 'clean up the menu' and get rid of them?

Then you have other things turned off hat are on by default - but that's
another day..

C:\Documents and Settings

Look under your username folder and Start Menu - edit as wanted.
Add/Remove/Move/Copy shortcuts as you want.
Look under All Users folder and Start enu - same advice.
