Start list is not showing ANY "Programs" x86 or otherwise.

Have just gone over to IE9 if that's any help, but my Start list is not showing ANY "Programs" x86 or otherwise.

I can find them in "Computer C:" but have they updated something or was I just imagining them being in the Start list.

Just found this aout fter uninstalling MBAM and trying to reinstall it and it's telling me I still have it in x86 progs - and you know the rest.

Any help please!
