Windows 7: Pinned programs disappear

Pinned programs disappear

Hey all,

A strange issue: For the past few days I was pinning a lot of programs to the start menu and aligning them the way I want without any problems. Now when I pin a new app and unpin it, the whole list (except, for some strange reason, the snipping tool and the programs features) disappears. And it reappears if I repin the same app or some other app. And will disappear if align a newly added app or sometimes an existing one. As far as i can discern, there is no pattern and it appears totally random to me.

Have attached a pic of what the start menu looks like.

Please help

Not sure why you are having the problem but you might want to consider upgrading to the RC 7100 release or even the unofficial RTM leak 7600, I think your problem would be related to the build your using so it would be impossible to pin point a problem with a build that no one else is using.
