I've run the scan and I can see all the links in the ...\1 \3 and \4 folders as you helped another person here (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic396978.html
). I copied the contents of ...temp\smtmp\1 to C:\Program Data\Start Menu and now evertything appears to be back, however my start menu has a couple more layers of folders to go through to get into the programs. To be more specific, my start menu still has all the empty folders but has a new folder named 1 which then contains 3 programs and another folder called programs which then contains the program folders.
So did I screw it up? How can I put them back in the proper locations in the start menu? Whenever I click on 'start menu' under ProgramData it denies me access.
Yikes! This is what happens when you have a non-computer person trying to play the role of computer person (me). And I know, I'll slap my hand for you, I didn't follow your directions specifically by pasting the lookup log in my post. Sorry!
