Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Which file did you edit and which theme required the registry edit to use ?
Looks like you have a very minimum number of programs to list in the start menu
Increase the number of recent program to list on it and see what happens,

Hi Thrashzone, after adding 2 more shortcuts to startmenu, the problem is gone, its because of the start menu's length. If I change to small icon, the problem appear. That's really weird but thanks for your advice, you really save me.
