    After I changed the drive letters on most of my drives (with a little unexpected help from Partion Magic), I have a problem with Start - All Programs. Most programs work as I would expect, but some still go to the old drive letter. How can I fix this?

    Windows XP Pro SP2, Pentium 4 2.66Ghz, 512 MB RAM.

    Thanks, Pete

    If you've installed applications on other than the boot drive, then moved that drive letter, my guess is it's time for a re-installation of the application. It's very difficult to find all the references to the drive letter, since it can be buried in the registry, and various init files within the application folders.
