XP thinks that some of my programs aren't compatible I think. I assume this because in my Start>Programs window, some are hightlighted in yellow. Many of these work just fine though. Is there anyway to unhighlight them?

Thanks!

Are you sure they are highlighted because of incompatility? XP will highlight new programs until they are run from the start menu. Run the programs from Start>Programs. Do the highlights dissappear?

Hmm.... I'm not sure. I'll check that out! Thanks for the advice. Say, do you know if there is anyway to avoid brining up ALL the programs when you select "All Programs"? I like the Win 98 when everything was broken down into smaller categories. If you can condense them, is there maybe a way you can have that window not take up so much space on the screen? I know this is a stupid question. The proper answer is probably, "Get rid of a lot of your programs then!" lol.
