    O.K..... I got a new phone from verizon today, and I inserted my SD card with my sprite back up. When I do restore, I get duplicate icons in my programs folder for: file explorer, space reclaimer, tasks, windows media. I also go to remove programs, and I have nothing in my programs to remove. How do I remove the duplicate icons? I don't get it......

    I don't have a 700w, but I do want to tell you that it happens on my 650. Any program I stored in the launcher reconized folder on the sd card will show up as duplicate iconin the application launcher, even though it's already loaded into ram.

    1. Use file explorer and navigate to \Windows\Start Menu\Programs and delete the duplicates.

    2. Remove a Start Menu item via a registry editor (google "registry editor pocket pc") and delete entries here:
    \HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Shell\Start Items

    Thanks for the advice, Beryl; I still can't eliminate the dupes...I navigated using resco, but the items were not there for me to delete. I go to start> settings> menus, I can't uncheck Contacts, help, and internet explorer. I really want those off. Incidently, these are duplicated here, along with messaging, file explorer, tasks, and windows media. Sorry to bother regarding this, and I am sure this is very easily fixed, but I can't make it happen. Please help, and I appreciate the efforts!

    I am having this problem as well after a hard reset and restore from Sprite...I have a number of duplicates that show up and Menu settings will not allow me to uncheck or change them. How do I..... 1.Delete the duplicates and 2.Free up the defaults showing in Menu settings? None of the duplicates show up in the Registery.

    finally figured it out....I was viewing my Windows>start menu>Programs(as advised above) file using Resco. When using the stock File Explorer it showed me more choices...it was a difference of 13 programs vs. 35. I deleted the ones that showed as duplicates when viewing Settings>Menus. Thought I would pass that along in case someone else has this problem.
