    Clicking "Sort by Name" in the All Programs menu makes finding your applications a lot easier, but Windows XP needs constant reminders to sort applications this way. This hack will permanently sort all your programs alphabetically.

    not much of a hack, though i might add you don't have to use regedit for all this stuff :p, you can setup profiles and network manage computers all the same :D. I am not going to tell you which program it is, i have a hint though "concole"

    the problem with xp is that sometimes the things will get sorted by itself (it bugs me as I like things sorted according to the time they created, but occassionally it will get sorted alphabetically).
