Did you install any applications for different users...that could be a potential.

Did you manually add programs links to the short-cut for the all users/programs folder?

If you use any kind of cleaning software like CCleaner it might have wiped the menu

Have you somehow locked your Start menu? Any program installed shows up in the menu in one form or another... I can only see 2 things that may cause problems... malware or misconfiguration of the menu.
Maybe?

Hhmmmm, that's a good idea I'll run a scan and see if anything comes up...if not I'll check all menu settings and report back. Idk what you mean by everything shows up in one way or another. There's tons of stuff missing, mostly in the first half of the lineup.
