I recently had a virus, i reformatted the hard drive and reinstalled windows
XP, I went on line for updates.

I am not showing anything in the shortcut section of my start menu. I have
gone to properties and it says to show the last 6 programs in the start menu,
but nothing.

What can I do to solve this. I loved my shortcut

Check your settings here: Start/Run/Regedit

Note: This setting only applies to the Windows XP Start Menu, not the
Classic Start Menu.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\
Policies\Explorer

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\
Policies\Explorer

If you have this Value Name: NoStartMenuMFUprogramsList change the Value
Data to 0 or delete the Value Name.
