All programs menu - several missing

  Seadog 10:09 31 May 2008

Several of my program titles in the "all programs" menu have vanished.
The programs are still on the pc - listed in windows explorer - and if I double click on the respective exe file, the program will open and run normally, but they are no longer on the menu.
These are programs that I don't use every day (i.e. MS Autoroute) but I have approx ten to twenty missing.
Anyone any ideas please?

If you right click the start button and select explore all users, the windows explorer opens. In the left hand pane select programmes - are these shortcuts now visible in the right hand pane?

Wis - not to my knowledge, I did run CCleaner a day or so ago though, but I use that on a regular basis with no problems.
