    I have upgraded from Vista 64bit to Windows 7 64bit.
    One Problem; in the Start/All Programs window there are no programs listed
    All my programs are in the C drive and will work from there using the .exe file. I also have installed some new programs but they are not in the "All Programs" window either.
    Any suggestions please?

    :rolleyes:

    I'm having the same problem.

    Use search in the meantime to find them.

    Hope someone can tell us both how to fix this....

    I think that is a left over option from XP. It will only remove the title in the Start - not the items listed. But lets see if anyone with this problem has a good result. Good find if it works. I can see, browsing, that this seems to occur with an "upgrade", not a clean install. - Nuf said!

    Have a look here:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

    If there is an entry for NoStartMenuMorePrograms, delete it.
