Don't ask how I have managed it, I think it may have been when I tried a trial version of PC-Optimizer Pro 6, but I have lost all the shortcuts that come up on pressing start. Can anyone help please.

Do you still have access to system restore.

  the old man 15:36 13 Aug 2006

Seem to have restore points for all days in August but no further back and they mainly consist of "windows defender restore points" and "software distribution service 2.0"
Not sure if these are sufficient.

When did you loose your bits. Last few days? give it a try.

To go back to July you need to use the back arrow on the calender. If it will let you.

Right click on the Start button>Properties>Start Menu>Customise.

You should also be able to drag and drop shortcuts onto the Start menu.

On the button with the customise suggestion. all sorted and I should have known that but thanks anyway. Wood for trees and all that.

Often the case. But don't forget, in the event of any similar cases of amnesia, that Microsoft's Help files for all its programs, applications etc or XP's Help and Support itself, are extremely comprehensive...:-)
