Hey everyone! Users of Microsoft Security Essentials know that the right-click menu item that says "Scan with Microsoft Security Essentials.." is just too long. How do I customize it?

I figured out that the file shellext.dll that comes with MSE is responsible for the context menu. I opened it with Resource Hacker and changed the string to "Scan with MSE" and saved it. Once I restarted, it hasn't changed:-O

Any ideas?

A solution was posted on superuser.com in the thread
Editing the Microsoft Security essentials context menu.

It turns out that for the en-us version the following file must be edited with a resource editor.

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Security Client\en-us\shellext.dll.mui"

I edited the dutch .mui file on a WXP SP3 system, succesfully.

MUI is Microsoft's Multilingual User Interface technology.
