This is what it says in that link

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

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
