    I was cleaning viruses and spyware off a customer's computer and after that was completed, I noticed that the was no way to access the control panel. I am not sure if this occurred before or after the scans. Anyway, all the links on the Start button are removed. I can't access it through My Computer or Windows Explorer. Does anyone have any idea how I can get it back for them without having to restore their system? I have never seen this one so I am completely stumped.
