Did you ever click the Start Menu button and find items on that menu that you don't want. Sometimes you may have removed a program or a file and forgot to remove the shortcut to it on the Start menu. There's an easy way to remove the item in question under Windows 98. Here's how:
1 - Click the Start button
2 - Select the item you want to use by Right-clicking on it
3 - Select "Delete" from the drop down menu
4 - The item is then sent to the Recycle Bin
5 - Repeat steps 1-4 for any other item you want to remove
NOTE: You can not delete "Programs", "Settings", "Find", or "Shutdown" from the start menu.
