The following VBscript forces the use of the Classic start menu for the logged on user.

If you would like to also enforce the classic start menu for all users on the machine, you could apply this change on the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" entry .

Requires log-off and logon to take effect.

'-------------------------------------------------------------------

Dim objShell, RegLocate
Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

On Error Resume Next
RegLocate = "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\NoSimpleStartMenu"

objShell.RegWrite RegLocate,"1","REG_DWORD"

WScript.Quit

'-------------------------------------------------------------------

Hope this helps,
Joachim
