Hi

Have you tried to 'undo' the tweaks you made with Tweakxp? That program
could have caused the problem.

Thanks for the reply, but i want to disable the "Classic" start menu, and get
back the "XP Style" menu, thanks.

Q292504 has the answer. Delete the NoSimpleStartMenu registry value.

But there is no value of that kind in that place.

Check for the "NoSimpleStartMenu" value in both these locations:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
-and-
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]

See if this REG file helps.
D/l and save the file to Desktop. Right-click the file and choose Merge:
