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?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
