I recently re-installed XP Home without problems; however, when I then re-installed MS Flight Simulator 2002 I noticed that, although the desktop shortcuts were insatlled correctly, there were no start memu items for the programme. I re-installed with the same result. Later I installed MS FS 2004 [CoF] with the same result - no programme on the start menu but ok on the desktop. Of note other programmes install ok with the correct start menu references. The probelm appears related to the MS programmes only.
