Control Panel As Menu = Blank

Hey SevenForums,

So I went to browse my control panel today via my Start Bar, which I have set to display as a menu and I get a menu that reads 'Empty'. If I set it as a link or open the control panel normally I see all my items.

Any ideas?

Take the contol panel off the menu and then pin it back. It got corrupted.

I'm not talking about pinning it to my start bar. I'm talking in the actual Start Menu. Regardless I tried switching back and forth already with no luck.
