I just bought a Dell Vostro 1520 from a seller on fleabay to replace my other Dell Vostro 1520, but to spite the fact that both laptops have XP Professional installed on them, I am getting a different type of "Start menu" outlay. I have taken two photo's of the two different ones, and will post them below.

 

The first photo is what is on my new computer. I want to change it to the same "Start" menu that is on my old computer, which is the one pictured in the second photo.

 

 

Does anyone know what I can do to get photo 1 changed to what is shown in photo 2, and post instructions on what I need to do to change it?

 

 

 

Thanks

Right click the taskbar, choose properties, click the start menu tab, click whatever menu type you prefer.

Thanks X for that information. It worked perfectly.

 

 

I have a few other questions.

 

 What is Intel® Network Connections Drivers used for?

 

I never seen this before, as it is in my programs and it is taking up more than 1,000MB of space. Can it be delete?

 

 

Also, I do not see an anti-virus program in there, but in my tray there is small icon that says "PC status: Protected." When I click on it a popup window opens for something called Microsoft Security Essentials.

Could an anti-virus program be included in that program called Microsoft Security Essentials, and can I delete it and use Avast free as my anti-virus program to replace it?

Microsoft Security Essentials is a reliable AV program.

 

I'm unfamiliar with Intel CPUs...but you can take a look in the folder to see what files are included.
