    What is this?
    ----------------

    This is an ADM file written to enable you to change the start menu locations in Windows 2000 and possibly XP. It uses group policyto do this, instead of the older and (in my view) more clunky methodin extensible policies.

    How do I use this?
    ------------------

    Simply edit your group policy, Right click Administrative templates, then click Add/Remove templates, click add then locate the file. It should appear in User Configuration\Administrative Templates\StartMenu & Taskbar under Custom Start Menu Locations. If not, click View andmake sure Show Policies Only isn't enabled. Then it will show.

    As an added bonus, there's a feature to remove the Outlook Express iconfrom the system tray. This is in Local Computer\AdministrativeTemplates\ Outlook Express.
