    IT may also help to know that this laptop has 3 different user settings--could this be why its not working? icon_eek.gificon_confused.gif: icon_confused.gif: icon_confused.gif:

    yah someone yes bellboy- I have two other users on it with their own settings. Neither of them can click on programs to see all of the applications. Another weird thing too--when I go to add/remove programs from the control panel>change/remove--I dont have any of my applications saved in there!! This is so weird because the programs are installed and can be run. So when i go on add new programs--bam i get an error message such as run a dll as an app... Funny thing is I can even get to use the "run" or search, help and support options---everytime i click on those it asks me if I want to make a shortcut to my desktop. icon_rolleyes.gif Any help on this bellboy will be greatly appreciated!!!!

    well I did this and it worked for now. I changed the view to classic start menu. I would still love to use it the regular way--so anyone who has an idea let me know.

    Im still having the error messages on add/remove programs though icon_sad.gif

    If it occurs on multiple computers there must be a recent change that causes this... Did you install any sofware lately?
