Hi everyone, let me just say fixya really lives up to their name. You really do help solve problems.
Now, for the actual problem. I am running an IBM T-30 with Windows XP SP2 and the overall system is working fine, however the picture on the start menu suddenly disappeared. System Restore and restoring the registry does not work. I feel naked without my picture. Can any of you experts help with my problem. Thank you.

I recently had the same problem and soon discovered that Chrome does not allow you to go to a menu and uncheck the primary or default browser box. I've gone onto the Google forums and tech support without any luck. I finally uninstalled Chrome and then reinstalled it but didn't make if my default and the problem was solved.
I'm now using Firefox 6.0 and have found it to be almost as fast as Chrome. In addition, the Firefox apps such as Cool Preview and Speed Dial are fantastic.
Probably not disappeared just the links
If you download and install 'everything'
Then you can search for word.exe - make a note of the path and then right click on your desktop.
On the menu that appears select new, then shortcut. Browse to the path from 'everything' then 'ok', 'next' and 'finish' You will now have a new link on your desktop
Is it possible to add another email account to your Windows Live Mail 2010? If so give it a try (Follow This). Actually your problem is little confusing since you have mentioned mainly two things, Windows Live ID account box and Windows Live messenger login screen.
