Wait how did you get that there. I have a dell support icon thre and i want it gone. Where in the registry did you go. It cant be deleted by normal means.

Try going to

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Versions\Menu Order\

Then Start Menu, or Start Menu 2, see what entries you guys have. I tried to copy some binary keys, but couldn't recreate the same thing :(

I've gotten very close to producing the desired effect. I have added the following keys:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{2559a1f6-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{2559a1f6-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}\shellex]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{2559a1f6-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}\shellex\MayChangeDefaultMenu]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{2559a1f6-21d7-11d4-bdaf-00c04f60b9f0}\ShellFolder]
"Attributes"=dword:00000000

This produces the icon on the right-side of the start menu, but it does not function correctly. When I click the link, I get a dialog that states that a shortcut cannot be created there and gives me the option of creating a shortcut on the desktop. I'll keep chewing on it.

Now i am not sure if you need all that. I just had a dell support right there so i searched for it in the registry and found it. Then i modified it. You will need an icon in you C drive. called DWeb. Note be careful this could potentially go wrong!

I have also attached it. remember be careful.

Here is a screenie.

EDIT: not sure why its in hex. on my screen is human readable. But thats how it expotrd i guess.


EDIT2: Just figured out how to change the run icon. the searchicon. Any pretty much any icon.

Ok, so now i figured out how to change all that i decided id share a small utility that i wrote a whil ago in C#.

Its called

Re-Name

what it does is help you rename various system icons like the recycle bin,my docs, my computer,network places, ect. You can also change the title of IE. I jsut added in the option to change the start menu icons.

These include

Search
Run
Help and Support

***************
Please Note this does make changes in you registry. Please usea it your own risk. This has been tested. But there is no warranty of ANY kind. i say again use at your own risk.
***************

an old version is here along with the source. If you want feel free to expand it. It could become a full tweakk utility.

Well its in the attachment.
