Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD
Windows File Protection will show an on screen blue progress bar which will simply disappear when the scan is complete, reboot when it does
If you do not have an XP CD you can borrow a same version as was originally installed XP CD, if you downloaded SP2 then you need an SP1 XP CD

After checking two XP machines and a Vista machine...that key doesn't exist in any of the registries.
Right click on the Start button and choose "Properties". Under the "Start Menu" tab, click on the "Customize..." button. Under the "General" tab, in the "Programs" section, how many programs are set to display in the menu?
