I just installed XP SP2 on a HP Latitude laptop. The install seemed fine so then I loaded programs from a server. (The programs included firefox, adobe reader, openOffice, etc.). When I clicked on icons on the desktop, the programs opened normally. However, when I looked under Programs, only the programs installed by XP were present. None of the programs I installed were on the list. They were listed on the Add/Remove lists. What happened? What can I do?

Did you install them using each program's install file? I don't know why they wouldn't have installed start menu shortcuts, but you can do it manually. In the start menu\programs folder just make a new folder for each program and add shortcuts to the exe files, hlp files and whatever else you want to display.
