lost my pin to taskbar and start menu items

Hi folks lost my pin to task bar and start menu in the context menu and I looked around on the site to find a solution but to no avail. Any clues on how I might get these back, and I have no idea why there gone except for the fact that my wife was the last on my computer. We know how that is...

If Brink's solution doesn't work you might want to consider a system restore to a point before the time your wife last logged on.
