    Can anyone help with deleting the entries in the start-run drop down box
    where you can bring up, for example, MSCONFIG, or REGEDIT.

    Windows XP

    Highlight the entry you want to remove and hit the del key.

    Hi

    Right click Start, Properties (Start Menu tab) Customize (Advanced tab)
    Clear List button.

    *If you have the Classic Start Menu:

    Right click Start, Properties (Start Menu tab) Customize, Clear button

    Either way this action will also clear any list of recently used
    documents/web pages visted too.


    HTH
