Start menu not updating vista

I did a search for 8007045B in Google but the information is conflicting, confusing, and for the most part all the articles I've read go around in a loop.I also came across an article on PC World which says to do revert my restore point - but that didn't work, either.I have heard that if you open Taskbar properties, then click Start menu, and uncheck show a list of recently opened apps, it would do what I wanted. I had to open them all back in the right order to get them back!So what I am saying is that I don't want it to rearrange anything as I open apps, and just keep the same orientation.UPDATE: June 21, 2016 – Microsoft has released a free repair tool for the Windows 10 START menu.You can read very brief explanation and download it here. It was a dark and stormy nighty in April when I installed Windows 10 build 10041 (on the fast ring) and the START button stopped working… If you have installed a recent Windows 10 build you may find that the START button and all of the modern apps either do nothing or error out with messages about . In my case I just installed a free START menu utility (I like START 8 or CLASSIC SHELL) that you might have install on Windows 8, and waited for Microsoft to release the next build of Windows 10 that I hoped would be installed automatically as I am on the FAST RING.We're going to cover a lot of ground here for several versions of Windows and a variety of 'stuck' scenarios, so you may have to tweak some of these steps to suit your situation and software.The first point to make is that interfering with updates that aren't actually stuck can cause a host of problems, so you want to make sure they really are stuck.

It may seem extreme, but you don't want to start meddling with these fundamental processes unless you really have to.

Here is the orientation I like: Top: Welcome Center, Windows Media Center, Windows Ultimate Extras, Windows Media Player, Windows Photo Gallery, Windows Live Messenger, Windows DVD Maker, Windows Meeting Space.

I don't have Vista but this works for 7 so I am assuming it works for Vista too.

But if it does, don't panic – we've got you covered.
