IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

sorry i thought that was for previous versions of windows.  I know in xp its in C:\Documents and Settings\(username)\Local Settings.  It is located somewhere on the harddrive in previous versions of windows and just needs to be deleted

Yeah, but still the best way to delete it is to use the operating system's own functions...

The operating system does the exact same thing.  Take a look at the before and after using the os functions and deleting.  They're exactly the same but using the os functions are more complecated!
