It is not a problem to me but im just curious why windows xp likes to arrange my newly installed programs at the end of the list.

It used to be in alphabetical order, very nice and neat. Now its like the new ones would line up after, say windows media player. Whats governing how XP manage this kind of stuff. Through registry or some ini files.

Anyone care to explain a bit?

To restore that nice alphabetical order use the right mouse menu in the All Programs list. There is a "Sort by Name" option. Also you can drag individual folders/programs into different places on that list.
