    It sounds like your registry is corrupt or bad that is where windows knows where your programs are and you are not getting that.

    You do not have a problem as those programs are registered Out look is not under O but in a folder under Microsoft your other programs may be hiding in a folder also.

    UPDATE:

    I can confirm that this problem does not exicst on my laptop wich i just upgaded and did a clean install on, so it must be tied to a corrupt registry.

    Is there any chance of doing a repair on the registry without reinstalling?
