Blaster Worm

Help - Was infected with Blaster worm. Both ISP provider and microsoft set out instructions and a patch to erradicate it. This seems to have removed the pest, however, I now find I can no longer use the SEARCH facility or the HELP AND SUPPORT ICONS via the START BUTTON.Has Worm disabled theses or is something else wrong?
I am running windows Xp pro.
How can I reinstall these faclilties.I would be grateful for any assistance.

try right clicking the taskbar and select properties/start menu/customise/advanced and tick the help and support and search boxes from the start menu items list.
