I have had this problem for a while. I can go to run prompt(c:\program files) or add/remove programs and view my installed programs. My system had a virus now its removed but my programs are not where I can view them in the start menu. also yesterday and today I manually built adminstration tools and system tools. they were destroyed some how. All I need now is to find away to put the installed programs in the start menu directory so they can be seen and accessed :)

Try right clicking with your mouse on your green start button then going to 'properties, then 'customise'. I'm not sure what you'd do from there as I've never had to do so myself, so some trial and error may come into play.

I'm quite sure though that this is how you add to or adjust the content of the 'start' menu.

Let me know if this works. If it does.. I'll be well chuffed! I just joined today! :)
