Captain Mainwearing!

As the good captain used to say "her'es a little wrinkle worth knowing"--On my HP vista desktop I lost the "accessories" category in the start up menu. I could locate them by changing back to the old classic menu but they had disappearsd in the vista start up.I contacted various sources and was quoted plenty of highly technical possible solutions but on top of the fact that a number of other weird things seemed to be happening I decided on a system recovery. This I did and sure enough the "accessories" category came back. Amazingly a couple of days later it had disappeared again.I just managed to stumble on this--In the "all programmes" I slid the slide bar all the way to the top then all the way to the bottom--no sign of the category but then with the slide bar at the bottom I clicked on the top small arrow an hey presto it appeared-- just like that.
