    In OEM versions of Windows XP, there is a manufacturer's link on the start menu. There is a check box in the properties of the start menu that can be used to remove this link from the start menu, but I would like to add my own custom link there. This will make it visible to all users current and new... in one convenient location. How can I change that link? I can't seem to find the registry key...

    :confused:

    If you open the .REG file in Notepad, then run regedit and follow the path to the new link you just created, the old one shouldn't be far behind; then you could just delete it.

    If you follow me that is..
