This is what it says in that link

Sort Start Menu and Favorites in Alphabetical Order (All Windows)
This tweak allows you to alphabetically sort the Start Menu and Favorites Menu.

Open your registry and find the key below.
To sort the Favorites menu hightlight the "Favorites" sub-key and delete it.

To sort the Start Menu hightlight the "Start Menu" sub-key and delete it.

Changes will take effect after you restart Windows and Internet Explorer.

Note: With Internet Explorer 5 or later you can also sort by right-clicking any item on the menu, and then select Sort by Name.

all you have to do is click start, programs, hover over any program and rightclick and chose "sort by name",,, there is no need do anything to the registry, this is the answere for 98 through XP
