    Yeah, they've made an error on that MS Support article.

    In step 5. it says:
    In Microsoft Windows NT or Windows 2000, copy the shortcut to this folder:
    Winnt\System32

    Whereas it should say:
    Copy the shortcut to this folder:
    C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

    Typical, eh ?! ;)
