Whatever I do in Windows Neptune (and some other betas), there is alway the button 'comments'. Is there anyway how to delete this?

No.

Its even present if you are using an Windows Server 2003 domain with Adminpak.msi installed, logging into an RTM/SP1/SP2 build of XP (the final one that can be bought in the store) and even then it says comments...

Lol, bug.


But back-on, no, at least I think not, its part of the Alpha/Beta expirience.

You really shouldn't make statements without having had a go yourself...

In the betas, the Hivesft.inf has strings that can be removed, to remove the "Comments"
dialogue on the right top side of running apps...
& in the running OS itself, there's strings in the registry that can be deleted to remove
the "Comments" wording...

I removed it in one of the last Neptune fixes, as shown here...

I got given an early Whistler yesterday, though for some reason it wasn't bootable, so after
making it bootable with cdimage, I decided to test the removal of the "Comments?" wording out...
Seems that editing the hivesft.inf on early Whistlers just gave error during the installation, then
I remembered that the PCHEALTH.INF was the file responsible for the comments dialogue in Whistler...
After finding it worked, I made a picture of what parts of the PCHEALTH.INF needed to be
deleted....
Here's the pic of how to edit it out of the setup...
I made screens of the strings to delete in the registry too if anyone's interested, in removing
the dialogue from the installed beta, or whatever...

What was the build you were given, if you don't mind me asking.
