    Default need help....missing program list in my start programs menu

    I don't know what happened but by daughter was using my
    computer and
    called for help. When I came to see, Internet Explorer
    would not
    work. My list of the the Programs in
    the "Start" "Programs" menu were
    gone. It just said "empty". I managed to get Internet
    Explorer
    reinstalled by editing my regedit and re-installing it.
    I've been to
    Microsoft knowledge base but cannot find anything on how
    to re-install
    the program list. Anyone know of a way to fix this? I
    have a HP
    Laptop and don't have the install disk for XP. I would
    think there is
    a way to edit the registry to load the links for installed
    programs.

    Thanks for your time,
    Pete

    >Double click each major icon (program) on your desktop
    and the menu list will automatically fill in again up to
    the limit you set. To set or check your limit of icons
    in your Start Menu, do this: rightclick Taskbar/select
    properties/Startmenu tab/customize/Programs/up or down
    the number (10 is the best).
