Windows 7: MS Office 2010 not appearing in Start Menu

Windows 7
MS Office 2010 not appearing in Start Menu

The facts...

I recently reconfigured/renamed a computer (bought earlier this summer) in our office to a new user (the users old machine was retired). In any case, I noticed that Excel, Outlook and Word no longer appeared in Start Menu > All Programs >Microsoft Office folder (it did show up for the previous user). Other products such as Access, OneNote and Powerpoint are still listed.

Not really a problem since I went to Program Files (x86), found the MS folder and pinned the .exe's to the Taskbar and Start Menu. Everything works fine.

I would just like to know why they are not listed in Start Menu > All Programs >Microsoft Office folder.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

That is pretty odd,
Especially if the start menu properties/ both Privacy boxes were checked,
Customize did you try Use default settings ?

The problem is not within the Start Menu.

As I stated in my initial post, when I go to the Start Menu > All Programs > Microsoft Office folder, Excel, Outlook and Word are missing. Again, I was able to find the .exe files for all three programs and pin them accordingly, but I want to know why they are missing in the first place.
