Drive name

I use a few USB-drives, and every one has a specific name. But since I installed PA suite, the name of my drives was changed to "PortableApps.com" in Windows explorer.
Is it a way that I could keep the name of the drive in state of the general "PA.com"?
Thanks

Actually I use VistaPremium SP1.

This might help:

Basically you want to edit the file autorun.inf in the root of your portable drive, it might be a hidden file, and change the name to what you want.

The key line is:

Label=PortableApps

change it to:

Label=TheNameYouWant

and again,

You know clicking on the drive name in the lower left corner of the latest menu release allows you to change the drive name, eh?
