    Hello, Have you checked GP settings? It is possible that someone has set a Group Policy governing this computer or a group which has removed access to All Programs from the Start menu. This could have been applied at the Domain level, by OU or to the local machine's GP so be sure to check all possibilities. Here is the location of the setting; 'User Configuration => Administrative Templates => Start Menu and Taskbar => Remove All Programs List from Start Menu'. Good luck!

    Also check permissions to where the user profile is stored. On C: drive or with roaming profile that is on network. Like the other two said: copy the default or similar user profile if you check where the profile is supposed to be stored and it really isn't there. Again the user needs permissions to read-write his profile. (Well only read if are locking down tight and know what you are doing).
