  • Hi,

    All icons\shortcuts included in Start button\"All Programs" are listed in folder
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs.
    They might got infected by some malware and deleted by security software, you can add the folders or software shortcut as you want to this folder.
