    Can't delete or add any items to start menu. When I installed Vista I
    was able to do it but then I must have locked the start menu somehow.
    When I click with the right button on the item I want to delete no popup
    menu is shown. Drag and drop methot doesn't work either. Any idea what
    could help? Thanks

    Right click on Start/Properties/Customize scroll down and put a check mark
    in Enable context menus and dragging and dropping.
    Hit Ok and then Apply.
