A further look in event viewer and yes:

Source: User Service Profile
Windows cannot copy file C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Opera\Opera to location C:\Users\TEMP.CEREBRUM.000\AppData\Local\Opera\Opera. This error may be caused by network problems or insufficient security rights.

DETAIL - Access is denied.

Hi jjmourajr, PowerDvD was known for removing the start menu items after installation!

However, yours seem to be intact, so am out of ideas, sorry!

A clean install is always recommended when testing a new O/S for this reason.

Sorry again, maybe a clean install might take the pain away from your OP

Hope you recover soon!!

You might try the repair install first to see if it can fix it without losing anything before doing a clean install though.

Yes, i'll try it first; i wouldn't like to reinstall all programs i use (it's a pain in the a*); if that doesn't help i'll do a clean install, thank you very much Brink. I'll keep you informed... thanks again...

Well, no success, the setup wasn't able to put right permissions (?) and start menu programs still is empty, and worse still it has managed to worsen even more permissions, i.e. gadgets didn't run at first, some folders in my profile weren't accessible because of permissions too...

I managed to fix that, and now it is working like before.

Now that there is a new build around, will wait for the 64-bit release, and make a clean install.

Thank you very much friends, and will continue to participate in the forums...

Same issues, Fixed!

Hey I just had the same issue and fixed it. Just go to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs folder and move all of these items out of that folder into a temporary folder on your desktop and your start menu will populate with the default entries. Then move them back and your good to go! Hope this helps someone else!

Haha....thanks.
Very good tip!

I had 7077 do this to me yesterday.
Been looking for an answer today and I can confirm this works for me.
After I moved the start menu items to a temp folder it automatically populated the start menu with the correct progams upon clicking the menu.

Good to go and thanks for the great tip.
You have Rep inbound...
