How to change OEM Mfg link?

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:

I used the tweak and was very pleased... but, there's that word... I would like to edit the original link in the OEM version of WinXP.. I will use this tweak as a starting point for my search... please keep any other ideas flowing...

Thanks much....

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..
