Do anybody know how to hide the settings and help and support folders in the classic startmenu?

I think you can take it off with Tweakui by microsoft. Go to there site and look up power toys under Windows xp downloads.

The setting to hide Help and Support from Start Menu in TweakUi is under Explorer.

If you want to do it manually you have to create new DWord values under this registry key and give them the value 00000001 , log off and log in again for the changes to take effect.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\Microsoft\ Windows\CurrentVersion\ Policies\ Explorer]

NoSMHelp
(This will hide Help and Support)

NoSetFolders
NoSetTaskbar
(These will hide the Settings button. Side effects: the taskbar right click menu "properties" and the keyboard shortcut "Windows key +E" will also be disabled)

I have attached a regfile (rename from .txt to .reg) with these settings.

That worked..
But isn't there another way?
Cause there's no more possibility to acces the Taskbar properties...

Any idea?

Sorry seems to be the only way. Couldn't find an option to remove the settings button either in Tweak XP, Xteq, Winguides Tweak Manager or anywhere else.

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
