When I go to Start -> All Programs I cant see all of the default shortcuts.enter image description here!

I have tried, to customize "everything" on properties in start menu (like search other files and libraries). Also in *C:\Users\Adnimistrator\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs* I have only few programs.The one you see on screen, but I have lot more programs in my C:\Program Files folder.

Also wnen I search for some of Windows featurs, I cannot find them, like Paint ( The content of Accessories folder, is not "normal" as well, because a lot of stuff is missing. enter image description here!

There was alredy this question posted on, but with no answer. Also, new programs that I have installed are on the All programs list.

What do you believe is wrong about that screenshot? I see two shortcuts in the screenshot. If you want additional shortcuts in your Start Menu just add them to the directory thats all an installer does. – Ramhound Sep 27 '13 at 17:55
I dont have windows short cut, as well. (paint, calculator.. ) It is not that I want any custom shortcut ( like adding Eclipse in "all programs") – malakrsnaslava Sep 27 '13 at 17:57
Sounds like you should start by installing Eclipse or creating a shortcut by hand in the folder. – Ramhound Sep 27 '13 at 18:00
I'm not completely understanding -- paint & calculator would be found under "Accessories". Do they not show if you click on the Accessories folder as shown in the image? FWIW, although I have Paint etc. under accessories & properly installed, if I search for "Paint" I still get "No items matched your search", yet the program runs from c:\windows\system32\mspaint.exe – Debra Sep 27 '13 at 18:02
I am going to guess you ran into this issue… – Ramhound Sep 27 '13 at 18:02

This is not a solution, but this is "workaround" ... I have copied

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

from other computer, so I have all windows things (like calculator, Sticky notes, Sonud recorder, everything under Accessories, Adnimistrative tools etc.. ) Than I have put all shortcuts I need in that folder..

Post this answer in case someone have same problem, but realy hope that someone will will give the right solution, not just this one. – malakrsnaslava Sep 27 '13 at 19:22

A quick Google search shows that this problem happens if your PC is infected with malware. I'd suggest performing a deep scan with your preferred anti-malware software.

To solve this problem, try SevenForums exhaustively detailed tutorial.

Thanks, but that is pretty much the same that I have done. It contains "same" zip file that I take from other computer. But thanks. – malakrsnaslava Sep 27 '13 at 23:48
