Dont ask how but my husband has obviously done something on our home pc. He logged in this morning and all that is on the desktop is the recycle bin - all other programmes have gone. Clicked on Start and then All Programs but comes up as empty. Have a bad feeling about this but is there anyting we can do?

Right click on Start then properties, and make sure (Start Menu) has a black dot in (Start Menu.) Or (Classic Start Menu.) click in one and then Apply and OK. What is your OS

First I would try a reboot of pc. It may just be a glitch. Switch pc off completely and then switch on and restart. While it is all switched off hold in the Power button for 20 secs to discharge any residual current.
