Last night my T520 unexectedly did not boot correctly and went through the recovery process.
After that finished, Windows 7 seemed to work fine but I am having to re-tweak many of the settings. For example, I had to turn "clear type" back on, reset email addresses in Outlook, etc....
One thing I cannot fix is the "frequently opened programs" on the start menu. The settings are set to list 10 programs, however it is blank.
Any suggestions on what I should try?
Update: I have tried restoring to earlier restore points and it is failing.
I found this thread: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-system/windows-7-missing-start-menu-progr...
Looks like other people are having the same issue, but I can't find a solution.
