Right-click on the task bar, choose properties, advanced tab, advanced button, to show the Start Menu folders. Check here to see if you can see the accessories folder somewhere else. If so, you can drag and drop it back to the right place on the Programs folder.

First Uninstall all the accessories, then reinstall them.

Download Tweakui and use the "Rebuild Icons" option.

Look in C:\Program files and check that the 'accessories'folder is there.
If it is,create a shortcut and drag this to C:\Windows\Start Menu\Programs folder (using Windows Explorer) or Cut and paste the shortcut into that folder.

Nobody is more surprised than me. I tried it and it didn't work!
The only way I could make it work was to copy the Accesories folder (ie the whole folder not a shorcut)to
C:\Windows\Start Menu\Programs otherwise the subfolders would not open automatically.
But if it worked for you, that's all that matters.
