Programmes gone missing

  Trikie 23:27 14 Mar 2005

A number of my programmes no longer appear on the desktop or in the Start>All Programs list.

Search finds them, but adding them to the start menu has mixed results. One enables me to get into the programme as normal, but others just bring up the list of files contained within the programme.

None of them appear on the Uninstall Programmes list.

First things first, what operating system? Is your antivirus up to date? Do you have adaware, spybot etc antispyware installed?

You can always create a new shortcut to the desktop: right click, new > shortcut.

Also don't forget system restore if your os is xp or millenium.

Given the little info I would first make sure that AV is up to date and then do a full scan, then run the antispyware. Do these in safe mode.
