    How do you remove stuff from the send to menu? I have ready deleted what i can fromt eh folders. Are there registry entires for the drives and programs? If so where do I find them?

    Also my zip drive is displaying 2 drives. How do I fix this?

    Where would I look first? Or do a search for the program and list everything it tells me?

    Look for the "send to" folder in 3 locations: the user name you're logged in under, all users, and default user. Examples:

    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\SendTo

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\ (mine doesn't have one, but it's a good place to look as some programs install under "all users" with all their quirks.)

    C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\SendTo

    These are hidden folders so you'll have to unhide them.


    To fix your zip drive double, go to device manager, remove BOTH instances of it, reboot and let XP pick it up again.

    (Btw, killer desktop, one of the nicest i've seen. What's the name of your theme?)

    I can help you with a couple. I don't have Winamp but what i show you may help you with that one.

    Open Winrar. Go to Options> Settings> Integration> untick "Integrate WinRar into shell." (you will lose both though, so if you want to keep the one, then you'll need to do the registry thing.) I don't know about that, only helping with what i can.

    Open WinAce. Go to View> Options> Archives> untick "Activate WinAce shell extension." (Again, to be selective you'll need to do the registry thing)

    WinAmp may have similar controls.
