Can'nt delete an item on the start menu.

I've got a folder on my start menu that I can't delete. When I try to
delete it I get a message that says: "Startup is a Windows system folder
and is required for Windows to run properly. It cannot be deleted." The
name of the folder is not 'Startup'. There is another folder with that
name. I do a search on the drive that contains Windows XP and can't find
anything with the same name. What's going on? How do I delete it?

I've received a sugestion in another newsgroup that suggests clearing:
"Tools > Folder Options > View > Use simple files sharing [recommended]".
I've left a message saying there is no such entry, but have received no
respose.

Don, what's the name of the Folder and is it in the left or right column?
Or is it in All Programs?
