    I guess you are referring to your problem editing filelist.xml? No need to make it bold. Look at the first post of the 'How to hack start menu' thread. The line to add is there typed in bold just to make clear what to insert in the file.

    yes yoyo i am trying to complete the following

    This tutorial is for changing the word 'start' into something else in your start menu.

    you are going to have to edit explorer.exe (very important system file) so if you don't understand this, don't try it..


    1.)download resource hacker

    2.)make a backup copy of C:\windows\explorer.exe (save it as explorer_bak.exe)

    3.)open up resource hacker and load C:\windows\explorer.exe

    4.)look on the left tree menu for STRING TABLE

    5.)expand it and look for nodes 37 and 38

    6.)expand 37 and click on 1033. some source code will appear on the right side.

    7.)change start to whatever you want!

    8.)click on Compile Script

    9.)go back to 38

    10.)expand it and click on 1033

    11.)change Start to the same thing that you changed it to before

    12.)click on Compile Script

    13.)save the file as C:\windows\explorer2.exe

    14.)edit this xml file - c:\windows\system32\restore\fi
    lelist.xml

    15.)this file is read only so go into the directory (windows explorer) and make it non-read-only (go into file properties)
    edit the first few lines to look like this:

    code:

    <PCHealthProtect>
    <VERSION>1.0</VERSION>
    <DEFTYPE>E</DEFTYPE>
    <FILES>
    <Exclude>
    <REC>%windir%\system.ini</REC>
    <REC>%windir%\tasks\desktop.ini</REC>
    <REC>%windir%\win.ini</REC>
    <REC>%windir%\explorer.exe</REC>
    <REC>*:\AUTOEXEC.BAT</REC>
    <REC>*:\CONFIG.MSI</REC>
    <REC>*:\CONFIG.SYS</REC>
    </Exclude>



    (add the bold line in.)

    16.)save the file.. this prevents win xp from automatically replacing explorer.exe with a non-reshacked version

    17.)go into the folder C:\windows\system32\dllcache (hidden folder) and rename the file explorer.exe to explorer_backup.exe

    18.)save your reshacked explorer.exe as explorer.ex2 in c:\windows

    19.)click start -> shutdown -> restart

    20.)click F8 a million times

    21.)select "Logon to windows - safe mode - command prompt"

    22.)logon as administrator on win xp logon screen

    23.)use "cd .." and "cd windows" to get to C:\windows

    24._type in "copy explorer.ex2 explorer.exe"

    Enjoy!

    Still in doubt what to do? Just insert the line:
    <REC>%windir%\explorer.exe</REC>
    into the existing file and you are done. No need (and no possibility) to make it bold.
    Btw you are aware that you exclude explorer from the files monitored by system restore in doing so?
