    Default Lost programs

    I am running win 7 home , 2 gigs of ram 32 bit in a Dell Vostro 220s Intel core 2 Duo cpu E7500 @ 2.93 ghz. Yesterday after returning from vacation I noticed my ms hearts shortcut was missing from my desktop, it was no longer under games in my file directory, I could find the exe in my pc it had vanished, then later last night I discovered several programs were missing from my startup menu. I went in the windows c directory found their exe's and copied them to my desktop, some of these worked but some of them didn't , they seemed to be missing from my pc too. I installed and ran System Update Readiness Tool for Windows. That didn't solve the missing files either. That is about all I can think of besides a system restore, are there any other possible fixes?

    Thanks
