    Program Files Showing in Start Menu

    I can't figure out how to change this...

    I used TweakUI to move the location of the "My Programs" path to the drive that I want all my applications on. Now, the contents of that directory are displayed in the "All Programs" section of the start menu.

    XP SP2 Pro

    Anyone know why this is?

    I think I would use TweakUI to change the install SourcePath directory back to the default C:\Program Files, then just edit the registry manually. Start | Run | Type regedit, and click OK | Expand the following branch...

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE | SOFTWARE | Microsoft | Windows | CurrentVersion | Setup

    ... then modify the SourcePath String value in the right pane accordingly. You may also need to modify the ServicePackSourcePath and ServicePackCachePath values as well.
