I`ve run XP Home and Pro on numerous machines and I`m pretty sure this has happened on all of them at one time or another. It`s not a big deal by any stretch of the imigination, but still annoying it is.

 Anywho, in the start menu, where it says your most used programs in that list. I think there`s 5 of em. Well, mine aren`t correct sometimes. Some games and stuff are all accurate, but then some aren`t at all really. For instance right now I`m playing FEAR and COD2, it says fear and all is good. For COD2 it says safe mode...I`m not running it in safe mode and I never have...For painkiller it would say dedicated server, and I never ran it, just the game was ran but it showed up as that.

 Any ideas on this one. I`m assuming it`s well know, but who know. Is the path right and just the shortcut wrong or the other way around? Any way around this nonsense :wink: .

 No bites?  :oops:

Turn off that "frequently used" option.

That's just my preference.  I'm all about the classic start menu where I can see everything.  Just make sure you put everything in order.  I can't stand that newfangled new menu stuff.

No idea why it would have an issue with keeping the right programs straight, unfortunately.  I've honestly never heard of that happening.

Hmmm. I actually like the XP look of things... :shock: . Like I said it`s a silly little issue, but a issue none the less...
