comment Uninstalling a program doesn't remove shortcuts from Start menu
Reverting to older state solved the problem. I guess an office installation caused this. But I can only speculate.

@Angel This does not seem to be a very widespread problem (although I did find one more question about this) so MS does not have anything in their KB about this

comment Uninstalling a program doesn't remove shortcuts from Start menu
@angel I am sorry if I came across as a wee bit frustrated. This is actually a minor worry compared to the fact Nasa Worldwind is broken on Win7. And I should apologize for not providing enough info in the first place. Anyway. I will roll back to a previous version. PLease propose that as a solution, in case it works?

This is happening for EVERY application I try to install/uninstall. Audacity, Worldwind, Google Earth, TORCS, Evernote, Mendeley, Google Drive. And I know for a fact all these have proper installers which do delete all shortcuts.
