I upgraded to Windows 8 and it ran fine until today when I logged in and there was no start menu!  All the apps are gone.  I'm running a distributed file system environment so I deleted the profile locally to allow the server to rebuild it.  Also used regedit to delete the user account registry key (profile list).  Tried to load again and still the same - no start menu.  Logged on as Admin and the start menu is there.  Any thoughts?
