Did anyone else lose the contents of All Programs on the Start Menu after upgrading to 7077? The menu is blank, but if I right click on "all programs" and select Open I can see all my programs. They just don't show on the menu. I upgraded from the official beta 1 build 7000 (x86).

This works!

1. Click on the Start Menu.
2. Right Click on “All Programsâ€Â￾.
3. Select “Open All usersâ€Â￾
4. Open the Programs Folder.
5. Create a new folder named “Aâ€Â￾.
6. Drag all the other folders into the A folder.
7. Close Windows Explorer.

You’re done. When you click on “All Programsâ€Â￾ you’ll see a limited number of Program Items. If you click on the A folder, you see all of your Programs. NOTE: In this folder the folders follow single shortcut items.

Thank you! That does indeed work!

Missing Programs List

I installed win7 build 7100 two days ago and have also lost the program menu display from the start menu. I will use the fix mentioned but gather this may be a problem which needs attending to
