Hi,

For some apparent reasons, my Microsoft Word, Excel.. 2007 and Adobe Reader can't be launched from either my Start Menu or Quick Launch. I have no problem opening the programs from the original directory though. And it is able to run properly before it suddenly stopped doing so.

Other programs like Notepad and such are still able to work and run from Start Menu and Quick Launch.

I'm not sure if i did something, but i don't seems to be able to figure out why. Can anyone help?

Hello,
The link to the short cut(s) has most likely been broken.
Right click on the icon(s) and select delete.
Than drag the Icon for the program to the start menu, and quick launch.
You may also right click the working icon and select send to. From here you may select the start menu, and quick launch.

Hi,

I have tried this method, didn't work too. Initially i thought the shortcut link could be wrong, but i click and check on the path, it's just the same as the working icon from the "All Programs" tab.

Hm.. Any other suggestions?
