    is there any way I can easily stop Windows XP from raising some items on the start menu and lowering other items, like in the following picture:

    Somewhere in the control panel, there's a nice list of all the comic features of XP you can turn off to make it more like 2K
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    You should be able to right-click on the taskbar and find an option to turn that off.
