Try doing a System Restore.

Go to Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore.

Click on System Restore and then click on Next for the two following pages.

On the page titled Choose a Restore Point click on a date prior to your current problem and then click on Next. To see earlier restore points click on Show Other Restore Points.

On the following page you will have the option to view the programs and drivers that will be deleted. To go to the next page click on close and then Next.

On the following page click on Finish. You will then be prompted to confirm that you want to start the System Restore by clicking of Yes. This will immediately restart your computer to finish the System Restore.

After the computer has restarted click on Close.

Try this and see if the missing items are in the expanded send to list:

Press and hold the "shift" key and then right click on the item. This will bring up a larger list of item. See if your missing ones are there.

Look in each of the following folders and see if your missing items are in either one:

"C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo"
"C:\Users\Default\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo"
"C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo"
"C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo"

If you find them, simply copy and paste them into the top one on the list ( the yourusername one)

If not, we will have to create new shortcuts.

Your Welcome!

It's hard to say for sure why it disappeared. One frequent cause is running registry cleaners like CCleaner and such, but if you have never used one it could have been any number of things.
