Taskbar and Start Menu

As you all know, it is possible to pin a program to start menu or/and taskbar.
I have done this and it works well, but today I lost my start menu (only the pinned programs) and all my pinneds program at the taskbar.

And I can't get them back - have tried restart and system restore

Any idears

You might see if resetting the Start Menu Pin To area and deleting only the contents of the hidden system folders below may allow you to pin them again afterwards.
  • C:\Users\(User-Name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar
  • C:\Users\(User-Name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\StartMenu
