Hi All,

I badly need help in removing the desktop namespace for the shortcut named, Hummingbird Neighbourhood. I have tried to follow the solution mentioned @ http://itninja.com/blog/view/hummingbird-exceed-2008---remove-hummingbird-neighborhood-from-desktop

Still when i reboot the system and open in standard user, this shortcuts comes back to haunt me. Please suggest some permanent solution .


Thanx in advance.

  • If we remove both the Desktop and My Computer icons, then 'Hummingbird Neighborhood ' shortcut in Start Menu on launching opens 'My Documents' folder. Require Help!!!

If the shortcut is returning after a reboot, I'd suggest that the uninstall has failed, as it sounds like Windows Installer is repairing the shortcut's feature. The Event Log will show that happening.

Ah, OK. In that case, check for localised effects of sunspot activity.

r u nutsProbably but, ibn my defence, I may have been driven that way by people who assert that "uninstallation is fine" when clearly something is left behind to trigger a repair. Did you look at the 'Application' event log yet? Thought not...

My apologies. I mis-read the gist of your query as an uninstallation. Nonetheless, my advice still stands: a feature is being repaired and the shortcut restored. Find the component (the event log details will contain its ID), find the feature containing that component, then re-jig the feature using a transform.I changed the path specified in that url to my computer Hmmm...a bit like using a hammer to drive in a screw. It works but it's not the right way.

hello,
Correct me if i m wrong, the source of Hummingbird exceed comes in uncompressed format.
I remember i did hummingbird exceed 14.0 a long time back. there are two files called HN_MyComputer.humreg and HN_Desktop.humreg under Program Files\Hummingbird\Connectivity\14.00\Default User\Registry\Shared
and Program Files\Hummingbird\Connectivity\14.00\Default User\Registry\PerUser. Following was how i modified these two files to remove desktop shortcut and retain a similar shortcut under MyComputer


HN_MyComputer.humreg

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

; Install Hummingbird Neighborhood into Current Users' MyComputer
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions\Approved]
"{DB8DC413-C0AA-11D0-9545-080009B1C2F3}" = "Hummingbird Neighborhood"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace\{DB8DC413-C0AA-11D0-9545-080009B1C2F3}]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{DB8DC413-C0AA-11D0-9545-080009B1C2F3}]


; Install Hummingbird Neighborhood into Current Users' MyComputer
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE64\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions\Approved]
"{DB8DC413-C0AA-11D0-9545-080009B1C2F3}" = "Hummingbird Neighborhood"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE64\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace\{DB8DC413-C0AA-11D0-9545-080009B1C2F3}]
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE64\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{DB8DC413-C0AA-11D0-9545-080009B1C2F3}]

HN_Desktop.humreg

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

; Install Hummingbird Neighborhood into Current user's desktop
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions\Approved]
"{DB8DC413-C0AA-11D0-9545-080009B1C2F3}" = "Hummingbird Neighborhood"

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{DB8DC413-C0AA-11D0-9545-080009B1C2F3}]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace\{DB8DC413-C0AA-11D0-9545-080009B1C2F3}]

; Install Hummingbird Neighborhood into Current user's desktop
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE64\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Shell Extensions\Approved]
"{DB8DC413-C0AA-11D0-9545-080009B1C2F3}" = "Hummingbird Neighborhood"

[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE64\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{DB8DC413-C0AA-11D0-9545-080009B1C2F3}]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE64\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace\{DB8DC413-C0AA-11D0-9545-080009B1C2F3}]

 Modify these two files as per above and i m sure you will get rid of desktop shortcuts.
