    Hi all, thanks in advance. I just downloaded TweakUI XP edition and messed something up. So I have my HD partitioned so that there is a partition for Program Files. I went into TweakUI Special Folders to change the destination. That worked great but now when I click on the Start button and go to program files, it shows all the files in those folders. And if I go to delete those files in the start menu, it actually deletes the program. Someone please help me fix this so that the actual folder doesn't show up in the Start Menu.

    Thank you

    I went to that, but it didn't work. It wouldn't let me delete it.

    It's not actually a shortcut in the start menu. When I go to delete it, it actually deletes the files from my partitioned drive.
