Hi Brink, I am back...

I've just recognized, that the "Pin to Startmenu" option is still missing from the context menu. Hmm, is there a registry "hack" to restore this option?

Thanks.

Hmm, ok.

You might see if doing a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated before this problem to see if it may be able to fix this for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
