sanjayjogs, when you look at start>programs, do you see a down arrow at the bottom? Various versions of Windows require different things. Some simply hover the cursor, others require a click. At any rate, your programs should be listed there.

No, issue is not that I cant see all my programs in one screen but they were listed till my last restart but now suddenly I see only a few and not all. There is no down arrow.

Also how do I get "Documents and settings" to display. Thanks.

The Start Menu a User sees comes from two folders:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs
and
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Start Menu\Programs

Where username denotes your User Account configured on the computer.
------------------------
Look for Programs in the above folders.

ALSO, another thought is that maybe a folder got moved to another location, in the directory of C: drive.
That is easy to do. I accidently moved a folder yesterday, but caught it.
