OK, I looked it up, it is the folder

c:\users\USERNAME\appdata\roaming\microsoft\windows\start menu

find this folder for your user and for the new user you created. Copy what you find missing.

Hope this helps

Well - Im not much of an expert in Windows 7. If you have all the folders, you should see the start menu correctly. Maybe a restart reloads it.

Otherwise Id say, you have to go the hard way and add manually to your programs menu all the stuff you want.
Problems like this can often be googled. Find other persons that had the same problem and see how they solved it.

Allright! Here follows my ALORTKYCC (Awesome List Of Recommendations To Keep Your Computer Clean):

1) Keep your Windows up-to-date. Windows Autoupdate should be ON (see Start >> Control Panel >> Security Center). An alternative way (but more time-consuming) is to periodically visit [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Hackers are looking every day for new security holes. Microsoft keeps patching them. You cannot fall behind in this race, it will make your system vulnerable.

2) For your average daily computer activities, use a limited/standard user account, not an administrator account. If you use Vista/WIN7 do not disable User Account Control (UAC). You would be amazed to know how much malware cant touch you if you deny it admin rights. Create a separate password-protected administrator account that you use for admin activities, like (un)installing software.

3) Use a good antivirus. There are various free ones, you cannot go wrong with either of the following three:
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. If you want your antivirus to be light on resources, I recommend Panda. Install without the toolbar.
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] has received great reviews from leading security analysts.
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is a very complete antivirus, with modules like mailscanner and webshield.

4) If your computer has 1GB system memory or more, you should install a third party firewall, to replace the weak Windows Firewall. I recommend:
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. Install the internet security suite, but without the antivirus and without the Hopsurf toolbar.
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. A very smart and user friendly firewall.
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is another rocksolid choice.

Note: you should run only ONE antivirus and ONE firewall. Running multiples of either is bad, it will cause slowdowns and/or conflicts.

5) Miscellaneous advice:
  • Stay away from cracks and keygens (look [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for the why). Get free software instead. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is an excellent source of freeware reviews.
  • Navigate safely. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is the safest browser available. However, Mozilla Firefox can be made extremely safe with the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] addon. Internet Explorer (always use [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]) can be made a lot safer with [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (manual [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]).
  • The [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] addon will help you to stay on reliable webpages.
  • [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] alerts you when changes are made in vital system areas. Especially good on light systems not running a third party firewall.
  • Make sure you have ways to recuperate your operating system and vital other data if its gets frustrated by malware and/or other problems. A Windows setup CD and recent backups/disk images will be priceless, if you find yourself in an unexpected tight spot.

Finally: did we help you? [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]!
