You've got something more going on here. There is no way that changing the start menu options would cause your programs to stop launching. If you haven't already, put these options back the way they were and see if the problem goes away.

A system restore to a date prior to your changes may also fix the problem.

What settings did you change? Is your Start menu blank or what is showing up? Without knowing what you did, hard to fix things without just re-installing Windows. You can try a Windows restore point but that often does not work. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306084

You can't see Control Panel from the Start Menu? When you say "nothing starts" is that really NOTHING starts or are just some things not there that used to be? You have to be carefull when explaining things. NOTHING starts is different than "some things are not working".

Are the programs and everying else there? You can get to the help files just by hitting F1. The modem settings you will have in the Control Panel. If you right-click on the Start button and go to the options, you will see the show Control Panel options there, that could be what you are looking for.
