    Well, it probably doesn't work because those instructions are for Windows XP.

    Try this, or somewhere around this: http://www.activewin.com/tips/reg/menus_2.shtml

    (OPENS IN WORD PAD)

    Notice the entry "My" in the list (Thats 1 i wanna remove) and theres another one @ the top of the list with nothing in the name field. (Same icon as the one that says "My")

    Ah Well.........
