Where did this Start Menu come from?

    I'm cruisin' along on Vista ... everything's pretty normal, and suddenly, on
    my Desktop, I notice a new manila folder icon, labeled "Start Menu." Sure
    enough, click it, and it opens to the Start Menu, as you'd expect. But
    what's perplexing is: (a) It's NOT a shortcut; (b) it cannot be deleted; and
    (c) where the hell did it COME from?

    Don't need or want it on my desktop ... if anybody knows how to get rid of
    it, great. If you know how it GOT there, even better!

    Gratefully,

    Bill

    open u "regedit",and make sure it was correct,

    "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell
    Folders"
    "start menu"="C:\Users\***(u name like me
    "kongmen")\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu"

    "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User
    Shell Folders"
    "start menu"="%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu"
