update: Ive tried deleting this extra 'Programs' folder that shows in the startbar in my pic, but ive noticed that it doesnt disappear unless I move it to the recycle bin twice! So now I have two 'Programs' folders in the bin, with their locations showing inside the bin as:
There seems to be an obvious conflict with my startup content-as although my normal 'all programs' content still shows in the startbar bar, custom or not (eg 'DVD and Video', 'Games' and 'Internet' etc as in my pic), what is inside them no longer shows, when I click on any of these folders. This must be because I have now temporarily moved both of those extra unwanted 'Programs' folders to the recycle bin, and that one of these two unwanted Programs folders (if not both) is actually also my original 'all programs' content too, and that I should definately not delete them. Could the 'Roaming' location may be the most temporary one, and perhaps the one to delete, if there is a conflict? Or should I merge both of these unwanted Programs files and move it back to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu.. or both original locations?
ps I hope this isnt too confusing, I know I should just leave these extra 'Programs' folders and restart, but I wanted to work out why they were occurring in the first place. Im not sure if Ill ever find out... a possible vista bug and nothing else :( lol
