Restoring programs after a XP pro reinstall

I have just reinstalled XP pro trying to sort out another problem.

My new problem is that my programs are still in the program files folder on C drive, but do not appear on the programs menu on the startup tab.

I have created shortcuts on the desktop to a couple of programs I need, but is there a way of getting them to reappear on the start menu?

Thanks

John

If you have done a complete reinstall, instead of a repair, then you will have to reinstall the programs as they no longer will have registry entries.

However, if they still work, create shortcuts in c:\Documents and Settings\[logon name]\Start Menu\Programs
