Default Altering the start menu, the hard way !

Hello

I want to alter the 'DELL Solution Center' link that i have on my start menu.

Where can i find the image, so i can change it, and where would i find the html link, so i can have it open another link instead of the DELL site.

Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks
Copper.

Once you have entered regedit, and typed dell solution center into "find", there will be a "default" entry. Double click that, and you will see the text "Dell Solution Center" ..change it to what you want.

Also, I think the image is located in c:\DELL, cant tell you exactly where though.

Thanks guys.

I managed to change the name, thanks for that, but that little Dell image is not in the C:\DELL folder, i had tried that before, as well as C:\WINDOWS\PCHealth\HelpCtr\System_OEM, but still no joy in finding it.

Here is a pic of the registry entries


Thanks again folks.

Brilliant Idea.

Why didn't i think of that sooner, absolutely amazing, in fact the next time my system breaks down i'll just go and buy a new one, in fact why don't i go and treat myself to a new car while i'm at it.

Superb, thanks for your input.
