    Win 7 redirected Start Menu

    I have am having wired things happen with the start menu, I have redirected the desktop fine and the Start Menu did redirect OK but now its just stopped woking with out me changing anything.
    I redid the GPO, redid the folder it goes back to, I even got another spare PC and stuck 7 on that and still the same thing, When I click All programmes its blank?

    Any Ideas??

    Ive had this before. See my blog for the reg fixes you need. There is a Windows Update out there (or a combo) which breaks folder redirection and it is a pig! Apply this reg fix to your machines (i use gpo to do this, as well as including the fix in my build too)...

    Would have thought so

    Just like their are updates to the Sync Center / Offline Files components in SP1 to address certain "oddities" etc...
