"My Computer" Icon Problem

Hello there ! I have installed 7tweak on my Windows 7 Ultimate to do some tweaks , searched the program done some tweaks i wanted... but after i restarted my PC I could not See "My Computer" Icon at the Start Menu, And Even if i Launch My Computer Throught the Search It opens a Window Saying My Computer but showing nothing Like a Blank Window... Is there any solution about Restoring back the original Start Menu Icons...
And in the Right Click menu the Option that Says "Pin to Task Bar" or to "Pin To Start menu" have been Disappeared too.

Definitely.

When you use programs like that you should always create a restore point first.

Some of the Windows 7 tweaking programs are garbage..

A registry backup?

Of what,. certain branches or the entire registry,.

And how old is it.?

You can't import an entire registry. It will fail every time.

A repair install requires you to put your DVD (Window 7) into the drive. Then when you get to the option of what you want to do, your just select repair.
