If I press Start - All Programs, I don't get a listing of all my programs as I used to. It's therefore very awkward to open a program for which I don't have a shortcut on the desktop. If I press Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools, all that shows up is Internet Explorer (no add-ons). This is particularly inconvenient, because I don't even know where to find the system tools! Do I need to reinstall Windows XP? If so, how do I do it. If there's a simpler solution, what is it?

What has changed on your computer since it last worked ? Were you recently infected, & went thru a removal process ?
