Windows 7: START>Program Files Problem

START>Program Files Problem

Hello to all,
Recently I had to restore a previous system image. My fault, not sure how, but I hit the o.k. button.
The problem I am experiencing is that normally in the Start>Programs Files you get a folder of installed programs. For some unknown reason the entry which was there, for Revo Uninstaller Pro disappeared and I'd like to get it back in place. Does someone have an idea on how to accomplish this. It was there after the Restore, but when it went to update, it failed the update and did a rollback, it is then that the Program Files entry vanished. Thanks for any help.

Go to this location- %appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu>Programs>Create a folder named Revo Uninstaller Pro> and create shortcuts to it's executable and help file etc which are generally visible in start menu.

Hello EzioAuditore,
Thank you for your reply. I have just the competency not to be able to go to that location. Might I ask you to explain in greater detail?
Thank You.
