I built this machine myself. ASUS PVP4-MX motherboard, 2.8 gig Celeron processor, 1.5 gig RAM, 1 80 gig HDD, 1 150 gig HDD. Fresh install of Windows XP from a genuine XP CD.
None of my previously installed programs show up in the Start menu, but there is a Programs folder on the C: drive with all those programs in it.
Yes, they run fine, but if I want to uninstall some of them they won't uninstall except through Add/Remove programs. Partly too I would like to have them available through the Start menu rather than having to go searching through the folder to run them. Just lazy, I guess.
I suppose I'm just mostly curious if there is a way to re-register these programs into the new Registry...
