Windows 7: Programs missing in Start Menu and admin permission lost

Jacee... I followed instructions that you gave but circumstancers somewhat changed this week when I was scammed/hacked by someone... (which I have reported to online fraud and police)... my problem remains in terms of Windows Updates not working.... and having contacted Microsoft (part of the process in establishing was it their technical support who contacted me ... or not) it seems the only option left is to do a clean install of Windows 7.

one problem after another at the moment... my IE9 is now showing 'script' error messages on numerous websites that I visit... including ones that I often visit and have displayed fine before... I have uninstalled and re-installed but problem still there....

Since you've marked both of your topics (this one and install.exe found on external drive - how do I find out what it is?) as solved, I hope when your computers are fully cleaned, that you remember to change ALL passwords to each and every account. :)
