    Hi

    We had something similar to this we found it to be a broken link, one of the programs shortcuts in the start menu didn't have the actual software installed on the PC if you get what I mean haha...

    Hope this helps

    How big is the start menu folder ?

    Have you added or changed anything recently ?

    Start Menu folder is 298kb (not very big at all, I think you'll agree! ;-)).

    Thanks for all the suggestions

    Start procmon running on the machine and then click start - watch as it tries to find icons etc for each program. At some point you should see "file not found" errors; that program on the start menu doesn't exist (or is in an inaccessible network location etc)
