Hi

My cousin has installed a Dell branded version of XP pro on her PC.

The start menu has a Dell specific item (Dell Soloution Centre) below "Run"
which she would like to remove. This area of the menu cannot usually be
altered without tweaking the registry.

Does anyone know how this area of the Start Menu can be accessed so that it
can be customised or have items removed/added?

Thanks for any info.
