Try this, type windows dvd in the search box. In the list right click and send to (create a short cut) desktop. Left click and hold the short-cut, drag over start, drag over all programs (wait to open) and drag to the list where you want it.

Does it show when you search for it?

No it dont show,Looking at this laptop the snipping tool has also vanished,Maybe a scannow sfc might be worth a go.

Have a look in Programs and features and select 'Turn Windows features on or off'. In the box that opens make sure a tick is in the box for 'Media Features'. If you expand that it should show a tick for Windows DVD maker. As for the sipping tool make sure there is a tick in the box for 'Tablet PC Components'.

Thanks for the feedback. Possibly Windows didn't quite load properly and a reboot might have cured it. Anyway, you've sorted it out now - good one.
