Can't you just go to All Programs and then right click on the list of programs and select "Sort by name"?  You may have to do it with each folder on the list, too.

If that option doesn't show up, then right click the Start button, select Properties, then click on the Customize button, then on the Advanced tab, put a check mark next to Enable dragging and dropping.

I think you misunderstood, I am not talking about the start menu, it is the All programs, programs. I need all these to be alphabetical instead of moving them line by line.

Are you using the XP Start Menu or the Classic Start Menu?  Either way, right clicking should give you an option to Sorty by Name.  And if you, as you say, are not talking about the start menu, then I don't know what you mean by "All programs, programs."  The Classic Start Menu has an entry at the top called Programs, and the XP Start Menu has an "All Programs" entry at the bottom which you click in order to get a list of all your programs in the right pane.

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

no it is in regular xp mode for the start menu, when you go to start, then u will see all programs at the bottom when you put your mouse over that it will bring up a menu of all your programs this whole menu needs to be sorted.

Well, there is a section at the top of the right side of the menu which are "pinned programs".  Below that, it can be sorted.  I'll attach a screenshot I just took from my Windows XP Home virtual machine.
