We went thru that earlier. It gives a a retarded Accessories folder. Unfortunately I do not know where the rest is.

Ok sorry, WHS, Did you try a system restore to an earlier time when all was good.

I just get the very abbreviated list that I described after the other suggestion. I still don't have the majority of what is in Accessories.

I would suggest building another administrative account then check to see if they show up under that account.

Hi try this and see if it helps, and if it doesn't, do as brady suggests, after you try this.

I am reluctant to build another administrator account. Even if it shows up there, it does me no better than if I access Accessories under my wife's user name, unless I am missing something.

To the last suggestion, I am not going to do a system restore and lose all the programs I have installed, which are many.

You won't loose anything.

I don't know if this works for you. You may want to try this method. Go to "Control panel", select "Folder options". Under the view tab, check "Show hidden files, folders and drives" and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files". Now navigate your explorer to C:/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows/StartMenu/Programs/Accessories. Is the folder there?

2 things. (1) the creation of the new admin account is a troubleshooting step that will tell us if it's profile based or OS based. (2) A proper system restore / repair will not remove or change any of the programs you've already installed.

System restore won't lose the programs you've installed. It will only restore the system settings and previous versions of files.

how can I add the Tablet PC accessories?
Windows 7 is running fine on my laptop, but the Tablet PC folder (in the Accessories folder) is empty. I'd like to be able to use (especially) the Math Input Panel. I haven't been able to figure out how to add it. Thanks.
