    Is it just the Start menu icons (like your default e-mail, browser, and pinned options), or is it the items under your "All Programs" as well?

      Try creating a new profile, although if ALL USERS has been damaged, this will not work

        @Ossian: the other users are ok....but the user profile im using is on a cant really create another one & move on as I got lot of certificates/licenses etc attached with it.

        @LoneWolf15: its only the Start Menu icons. The "All Programs" icons r fine.

          Right-click the start-menu button and choose 'Open All Users'. Do you see the programs listed in the folder C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\ ?
