XP has to start menus - the new "Start menu" and the old "Classic Start menu".
Sounds like yours got changed from the XP Start menu to the Classic Start menu.
Right click your Start button, Properties, choose Start menu (your choice), OK (or Apply, OK).
It is a user preference thing.
If it changes back again by itself or you can't change it, you may have another problem (like some malicious code).
The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates.
