    Hey everyone. I had several programs pinned to my Start Menu prior to the most recent Windows Update which I just installed the other day. Ever since the Windows Update installed, my programs that I pinned to my Start Menu have seemingly disappeared. I cannot find them elsewhere within the Start Menu either. I did a quick search of both Program Files folders under my hard drive and didn't see them there either but I did not search extensively. I would greatly appreciate any help in fixing this issue as I had a saved game in my Pharaoh game which was pinned to the Start Menu and now I can no longer find my game to play. Here's my System Information:

    I should note that I use ZoneAlarm antivirus and firewall but for some reason, it's not listed on there. It only lists Windows Defender for some reason.

    Okay, I looked more carefully and found the programs in my Start Menu so I am just pinning them to the Start Menu all over again. I wish I knew why they got unpinned.
