A rather neat trick (I think) with the Quick Launch toolbar is to create a Folder, say ...\Quick Launch\Admin and drag it to the left of the QL menu area. You can also create Sub Folders under this Folder. I call mine "Admin" so it's alpha-first but it and the the sub-dirs can be any name.

One caveat, if at some time you selected "Sort By Name" for the Quick Launch menu you are stuck with an alpha-numeric name to keep the Folder visible at the left, whether "Admin," 0Cool (zeroCool) or some such.

Hold down the CTRL key and Left-Mouse-Click to expand the "Admin" Folder as a menu rather than opening it as a Folder. Works great, very fast. The "Admin" folder can contain as many Folders and Menu Items as you like.

I pretty much keep this to regularly used programs, specifically not as a substitute for the Start Menu system. The same programs (or Links) exist in my Start Menu. In fact, the shortcuts are copied from the Start Menu structure...

ROFL, so true...

Hmm, according to my log files during this time I did not get these seriptitious updates...

In my Hosts file when WGA first started this (XP) nonesense quite a few months ago, I restored a just prior Image Backup and I added the following...

# Resent MS Joe Bob's wgatray.exe phoning home
#      is used to test connectivity to the host computer & can't be used
# 192.168.253.*    Not tested
#         So, max it up into the TOP unused Host IP      # primary   # also resolves to...
# /Resented :)
