For the past months no entries are created in startmenu when I install an application. This is truly annoying. Windows is not my main OS so I am kind of at a loss.
The only clue I could find is this:
THE SOLUTION IS HERE!What solved the issue was to add Authenticated Users back to the profiles of all files on the system. This may not be the way thing originally were setup but when I copied an outlook folder from Vista OS to my Win 7 OS (both are on my PC) is when the Authenticated Users rights went away. In addition I had to go back into start menu properties and select custom and re-enable Administrative Tool which also went away at some point. Everything is back to normal now.
But I don't really know what this guy is saying.
Anyone with a clue stick, please smack me hard with it.
Here are screencaps of permissions for start menu folder. All permissions out of view are disabled. It seems adding write permissions may be the way to go, but I am not really sure ...
