Windows 7: No All Programs List

29 Jun 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
No All Programs List

OS: Win7 x64 7100 RC

When i click the start button and move my mouse to all programs it changes but there are no list of them, it is all white. When i right click the all programs and choose open i can see that all programs are there and they all work fine.

I didn't had this problem from start, it happened recently.

Of reg cleaners i only use CCleaner and it didn't make any problems for sure.

Is this a known problem and how can i fix this?

Have you tried doing a System Restore to a time before this started happening.

If that doesn't work, try a file check. SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Hope this helps.

I have this problem too! I think it happened after I installed a program, meant to post here but as I use Launchy, and because the Win7 search is still fine - I just forgot!

Can't do a System Restore (happened too long ago), I'll try the SFC but I really doubt it. But as Iceman has it it does sound like some sort of "bug".
EDIT: SFC was clean

Any other suggestions?

If its too big of a problem, perhaps a reinstall might fix it? you could also try re-adding your exe's to the start menu folder, that might work
