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....

try this......go to Run>gpedit.msc (group policy editor) >Administrative Templates> start menu and taskbar and then highlight > Remove All Programs list from the Start menu ......then right click and go to edit and check or dot disabled. Please repost with results

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!

I tried doing this and I am still having the same problem as the original poster...

Have a look here:

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

If there is an entry for NoStartMenuMorePrograms, delete it.
