Windows Vista Start menu missing some programs from list

I have a computer with Vista and suddenly the Start menu only shows a partial list of my programs. How can I reset it to show all the installed programs?

Thanks in advance for the help

Alternatively this is worth a try as well:

You can restore the Start menu to its original, default settings.

1. Open Taskbar and Start Menu Properties by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Taskbar and Start Menu.
2. Click the Start Menu tab, and then click Customize.
3. In the Customize Start Menu dialog box, click Use Default Settings, and then click OK.
