The case of the disappearing menu item...


S

I'm operating on an XP Home SP2 box. 2.2 Ghz Intel Celereon, .5 Gig RAM.
Suddenly, inexplicably, some of my menu items have vanished. Specifically,
when I right click on the START menu to EXPLORE ALL USERS, the menu that
comes up has a BIG gap between Open with Rapid CRC and Play in Winamp. I'd
say there's a four item gap there. How do I fix this? Thanks ahead of time!

Probably screwed up context menu entries in the registry. Maybe something
partially left over from uninstalling some program.

The Start button right click menu contains:
---------
Open
Explore
Search
Properties
---------
Open All Users
Explore All Users
---------
And others depending on what software you have installed.

See these...
