More Details

Don’t forget to turn off viewing hidden folders when you are done. (SYSTEM having Full control of this folderis the default situation on a Windows installation.)

  • Not having permissions to create the start menu icons in the appropriate folders. To resolve browse to “C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu”, then right-click on the folder “Programs”, select “Properties”, go to the “Security” tab and make sure there is a group called “SYSTEM” with “Full control” (if not, then add it). (SYSTEM having Full control of this folder is the default situation on a Windows installation.)
