You will need your Windows installation CD or restore disk, then perform the following:

Go to Start > Run > type cmd > press enter.

type in sfc /scannow

This will scan windows for any missing or corrupted files. You will need the cd for Windows to replace the files as needed.

How to pin Device Manager to the Start menu

Device Manager is a handy Windows tool for managing and troubleshooting components and peripherals. There are several different ways to access the device manager, however each of them requires a few steps. For easier access, why not pin the Device Manager to your Start menu?

Pinning a program to your Start menu is a simple procedure -- just right click on the file name or icon and select "Pin to Start menu." However, the Device Manager is typically accessed from inside another window (usually either the System Properties screen or the Computer Management console), and you can't pin it to the Start menu from there.

In Windows Vista, you can hunt down the Device Manager using the Search bar (just type "device" or "device manager" into the Search bar) and right click it from there to pin it. In Windows XP, the process is a little more involved -- you can follow the same steps as for Vista, but XP's search feature takes much longer to find files than Vista's does, so you'll be waiting at least a minute or two. By the time the system finds the Device Manager, you could have already been done with the whole thing.

To find the Device Manager file in Windows XP, open up Windows Explorer (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Windows Explorer). Click the plus sign (+) next to My Computer, then navigate to C:, then Windows, then System32. In the System32 folder, find a file called "devmgmt.msc" -- this is the Device Manager. Right click on it and then select "Pin to Start menu."

Start Menu tips in windows 7

Start Menu tips Many people overlook the Start Menu, rarely using it except as a jumping off point to run an application or get to the Control Panel. But there's actually plenty you can do with it.
Search the Internet from the Start Menu Note: This tip relies on the Group Policy Editor, which isn't available in some versions of Windows 7. Thus, this tip will not work if you have the Home Premium, Starter, or Home Basic editions of Windows 7.
The Start Menu's search box is a convenient way to search through your PC -- but you can also have it do double-duty and perform Internet searches as well. To enable this feature:

1. In the Start Menu search box, type GPEDIT.MSC and press Enter to run the Group Policy Editor.

2. Go to User Configuration --> Administrative Templates --> Start Menu and Taskbar.

3. Double-click "Add Search Internet link to Start Menu," and from the screen that appears, select Enabled. Then click OK and close the Group Policy Editor.

4. From now on, when you type a search term in the Search box on the Start Menu, a "Search the Internet" link will appear. Click the link to launch the search in your default browser with your default search engine.
