Dunno what you have. Some people download illegal programs that are full of virus's and rootkits.

I'd do a restore point maybe.
Boot to safe mode and try to fix it.

Reload the OS from OEM disks/media.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

There's no need to be that radical like the above poster stated!
Remember that the startmenu isn't nothing more but a bunch of shortcuts.
Keeping that in mind you can allways check if the shortcuts lead to a location.
If the shortcuts can't find the targets then there's no use of having these shortcuts.
In that case just right-click them and select delete.

A restore point is one of the most safe things one can do to attempt a fix.

I just can't tell what you have but I can say illegal downloads are the worst thing to put on a computer. They are just too dangerous in terms of data security.
