Wondered why it was taking so long for all my programs to appear when I clicked Start - programs. When I changed to the Classic Start view, it reckons that the programs is empty. I tried to system restore but it kept telling me that it was unsuccessful, I tried several different restore points.
I can still access my usual programs from the desktop and my lesser used ones through my computer, but why the hell are they gone from the Start - programs and how do I get them back??
Thanks Herk, it sound like it's a bit more serious. Everytime I try a System Restore, my computer restarts and then tells me that the restore is incomplete, doesn't give me a reason, but it's done this every time I've tried, and it doesn't matter how far back in time I go.
