Access Windows Mobile 6.5's Start Menu while using HTC Sense 2.1?

I recently got a Verizon Touch Pro 2 and I upgraded it to the stock Windows Mobile 6.5 rom. I think that it uses HTC Sense 2.1. The only problem I have with it is that when I click on the start menu(with HTC Sense activated), it uses the menu for Touchflo Sense, which is similar to a programs tab. I would like for the Windows Mobile 6.5 start menu to show up instead of Sense's. Does anyone have a cab for that or know how to bypass the Sense start menu?

Thanks in advance, and yes, I have searched for this multiple times on multiple sites. Sorry if there is already a fix for it out there.

I downloaded the rom update from here if that helps at all: http://www.pcdphones.com/phone_downl...zon%20Wireless

There is a cab for it but I don't have it or know where it is as I'm not Verizon...I do want to let you know that you have Sense 2.1 (no TouchFlo any more, btw).

EDIT: Try this

Whoops, sorry about that. I had tried to find out what version of Sense I had but couldn't find it anywhere so I assumed it was 2.5.

I tried the cab but while I have Sense activated, it still brings up the Sense start menu. Thanks though.

Well then, hopefully someone will chime in with the proper cab as I couldn't find it via searching either....

You need to change two keys:

HKCU\Software\HTC\Manila
set DWORD "EnableStartMenu" to 0

HKLM\Software\HTC\EnlargeMenu
set DWORD "EnableManilaStartMenu" to 0
