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.
