Sometimes when I click on my start button, usually after startup, a balloon comes up and tells me that some items cannot be shown and that I have too many items pinned to my start menu. I didn't really know what this meant because I didn't have that many things pinned to the start menu, so I cleared all the pinned items and it still said it. In the screen shot I provided you can see that there are only three things pinned to the start menu, yet it says that I have too many. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Works fine for me....

This message has confused many people. It seems to say that you've pinned too many items to the Start menu, but that's not the only possibility. The left-hand side of the Start menu holds two special collections of icons. Above the line are those you've pinned to the Start menu, and below are those that Microsoft Windows thinks are your most-used apps. If the total number in both groups is too large to display, one or more of the most-used apps won't show up, and you'll get the warning.

This is easy to solve. Right-click the task bar, choose Properties, click the Start menu tab, and click the Customize button. In the middle, there's a control labeled Number of programs on Start menu. Click the Start button, count the menu items below the line, and set this value to match. Click OK, OK, and the warning won't bother you again.

Here is what it says:

In the beginning there was the command line.

yea it opened the fourth time I clicked it, for some reason it kept telling me the article couldn't be found. Also, that didn't work. I had 5 icons underneath the line, so I set it to 5 and it still popped up
