Look for each software on your HDD and place a shortcut on your desktop and then drag them onto the location on the Start Menu.

Hi mpy...Welcome to G2G!

Try doing a system restore to the day before you removed Messenger. That should put things back as they were. I'm assuming that you "deleted" Messenger (Windows doesn't like that) to prevent it from starting when you start your machine. Instead, disable it this way....

Click "Start" and then choose "Run" from the menu. In the text box type "msconfig " (without the quotes) and click "Ok". Click on the "Startup" tab and find the application you want to stop in the list. Clear the check box next to that application and click "Apply" and then "Ok". Don't get carried away stopping applications in there...many of them are necesary to run Windows. You can search for information on startup programs and whether they are required at startup Here.
