Start menu items disappearing

This has now happened to me twice, and it's pretty annoying. All the
shortcut items in the root of the Start menu have disappeared. That is all
the default Vista apps like Movie Maker, Picture Viewer, Mail etc, plus a
few other things I've installed that place icons in the root list PhotoShop
CS3. The sub folders are still there fine. The applications whose shortcuts
are missing are also still there, it is just the Start menu shortcuts that
have gone.

I've looked in the C: drive where the Start Menu folders are (C:\Users and
C:\ProgramData) and the shortcuts are indeed gone. Previous Versions doesn't
show anything up either, so they're completely gone.

After the first time this happened I copied the entries from my Laptop, and
all has been fine for a few weeks, but they're gone again.

AVG Free 8 reports no viruses, and both SpyBot and AdAware report nothing of
any significance.

Anyone got any clues?

I had a similar problem, I removed Power DVD & everything came back, maybe
this applies in your case

Well, I had just recently installed PowerDVD 7. But uninstalling and a
reboot hasn't made any difference. :(

Is Microsoft going to address this issue or not?? Because it's really
starting to piss me off.

All these overpaid $70K+ computer programmers can't solve this one problem?
I've been loyal to M$ for a long time, but you people are really waning my
patience. FIX THIS PROBLEM.

If your getting pissed off didn't do it, THAT will.

Bozo.
