    I tried Option 2, and I got tired of waiting for the second command to display tens of thousands of error messages, so I closed the Command Prompt prematurely. Is it possible that that's what caused a lot of my Start Menu icons to vanish?

    Hello Greg,

    Deleting the Windows.old folder would have no effect on the Start Menu. It only deletes the backup of the previous Windows version/build.
