I no longer have any icons in the Start Menu " Most Frequently Used
Programs" section.
I haven't cleared out this section and use it frequently.
I have not installed any new software.
Can anyone help please?

XP Home SP2 fully updated.

Right Click in an open area on the Task bar or Start menu.
Select Properties
Select the Start Menu Tab
Click on Customize

In the middle section titled "Program" with the Clear List button .
Make sure the "Number of Program on Start Menu:" Drop down box is not set to
zero
Change it the your preferred number of program.

Hi Zimran,
My fault, I meant the section below the Start Menu programs, Recently used
programs. It is empty, and normally has a number of shortcuts to recently
used programs.

I think you are referring to the 'Quick Launch" bar. Right click on a
vacant area of the toolbar and select Quick Launch. This will give you the
items you want, I believe.

That section list the Programs that you "most often use"
and my previous suggestion should work unless you have settings or a program
that
automatically removes them.

Hi Don,
Sorry, it is not the Quick Launch Toolbar, but the section between the Start
Button and the Start Menu above it, where the Frequently Used Program
shortcuts are inserted, that is missing.

Please type regedit in Start Run, navigate to
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\StartPage
and right click StartPage in the tree and choose Export. Export as *.reg file and include file in reply. You open a reg file by right clicking it and choosing Edit.
