restarted the system they were gone. I have search fort virus and there was
none. How do I get them back?

Try a System Restore to when things worked. To run System Restore, go to the
Start Orb and in the Start Search box type "System Restore" without the
quotes. System Restore will appear in the Programs result. Click on it,
allow the UAC prompt, and follow the wizard.

Re: All programs gone from Start Menu
It said there was an errr applying the restore point. I tried Several. Also,
I don't have a vista disk to repair with. The software is prepackaged on a
recovery disk.

Check in safe mode they are still there. Have you installed any programs
that might have interfered with the systems stability? When safe mode, click
Start > type CMD > right click it > Run as Administrator > at the command
prompt type sfc /scannow
