Restore Link to the program menu

i dragged the System Restore link from the program menu to the Start menu and it no longer appears
on the program menu. Is there a way to put a System Restore link back on the program menu and have the links in both places?

thanks
Walt

Display Favorites as a link not a menu in Start Menu
I think the only thing that will work here is a registry hack. By default if you set the start menu properties to display "favorites" it does so by a menu. It does not give you a choice to display this as a link or a menu like it does for other folders. Is there a way to fix this?
