Very recently?

Are you able to run System Restore and roll-back to time/date BEFORE it
happened.

If you can't run SR in Normal Mode, can you run it in Safe Mode?

Have you checked for viruses etc?

Oh Dear!! - Chris, you are now almost entering 'The Last Chance Saloon'

Boot with your WinMe Startup (floppy) Disk and choose 4) Minimal Boot.

At the A:\> prompt, type "scanreg /restore" (no quotes and note the space
between the g and /) then press Enter.

Follow the screen prompts and when asked, select the LAST 'good' date BEFORE
THE PROBLEM, continuing with the instructions.

Don't forget to remove the floppy disk BEFORE you tell the machine to
reboot.

Hopefully, this will get your Start button back again.

Good Luck

Mart
