Can not delete folders from Start Menu

Posted: 06-11-2006, 03:25 AM
I assume that this is a bug, I will report it to MS, but wanted to make sure.
I installed Yahoo! messenger on build 5348.4, and for some reason I can not
delete the Yahoo! Messenger folder. So, being accustomed to XP, I go to the
Start Menu folder in both Admin and my user account. The Yahoo! folder isn't
there.

Also another question, I unchecked the 'sort files by name' option, so
folders, then exe shortcuts will sort in 'All Programs'. However, the 'All
Programs' (Programs) are still sorted by exe shortcut then folders. I aslo
noticed that when I installed a prog (Galactic Civilizations), a Programs
folder was created on 'All Programs' that mirrored the files on the start
menu.

MS has alot of work before RTM.

I ended up deleteing the folder in Safe Mode, a quirk in UAC I'm guessing.
