Windows 7: Lost ACCESS icon in All Programs

Lost ACCESS icon in All Programs

I have recenty installed Office XP (yeah I know,its old - like me) in my new PC with Windows 7. However, the ACCESS icon and reference in All Programs disappeared when I copied it to the desk top. That did NOT happen with EXCEL and WORD icons when I copied them; they stayed in the All Programs list as well as appearing on my desktop. How do I get the ACCESS icon and reference back into the list of All Programs?

All of the various programs in Office are listed separately under All Programs. And YES the ACCESS reference is not there. It is on my desktop (and bottom tool bar, or whatever you call it).
