If it's old programs that you are wanting to get rid of, go to Add/Remove Programs and remove the programs you don't want and it should get rid of it's icon on the Start menu. If it's Recent Programs (left half of the Start Menu), you can right click em and do "Unpin from Start menu". If it's an app listed under Programs that no longer has anything to link to, right click it and do Delete. Hope that helps.

To clear the Past Items list, perform the following steps:
Delete the IconStreams and PastIconsStream values from the following registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\TrayNotify

Open Task Manager, click the Processes tab, click Explorer.exe, and then click End Process.
In Task Manager, click File, click New Task, type explorer, and then click OK.

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
