This happens to me when pinning a new program to the start menu sometimes too but I fix it in a second.
I just rightclick on the start menu & click properties then OK
and magically all the start menu items reappear.

I don't know why it does this but that's an easier fix then reinstalling the OS.
Hopefully they'll have this fixed by the final version.

I'll be doing a fresh re install as well. It's rather bothersome that a "fresh" install will keep info from the previous install unless you do a format.

Gets you thinking about what else is being "pulled" off the other install.

OMFG, if only i knew that before i did fresh install...
well at least it will help everyone else that may get this error and find out that i formatted and reinstalled to resolve it .
Saves a bit of time i guess, i wonder how it keeps the info from the previous install?

might have to post a new thread see if i can get me some answers.
