I've had a virus this week which I've now sorted but I'm missing some of the items/folders on the start menu. Accessories for example is now missing
How do I repair them ?

Go to Start, Run, type Shell:Common Start Menu and press Enter.
Make room on the screen for another explorer folder and type Shell:Start Menu and press Enter

Now you should be able to drag items from one folder to the other.

Are you sure the virus has been removed completely?
Can you tell us which one it was and how you removed it?

These things have an irritating habit of turning up again repeatedly.

Tried all the solutions above & still no accessories on the menu.
The first virus was a Trojan Horse (un-named) & a second virus called Antivirus 2009 which NIS 2008 dealt with.

Can I re-install the accessories start menu links from my original windows XP CD to solve this ?

I now have accessories on the first menu but no sub-menu etc
However if I double click accessories on this first menu I get a folder view with all the items in it ! - how do I get this to show as a sub-menu instead of a folder ?

Anyone know how I can rebuild the Accessories sub-menu in XP Pro ?
