Hey, I figured out how to get my all programs folders restored to where they were no longer empty.
1)Go to the startup icon
2)then put cursor over "All Programs" and right click and click on "open"
3) then select the "programs" folder and right click and select "properties"
4) then select the "previous version" tab, await the previous versions to show up and select the folder that existed prior to your problems and hit restore and follow through with prompts.
