Windows 7 Lost the Menus After Virus

I lost the right side of the Windows 7 menu. All the program short cuts showed up, but Documents, Pictures, Music, Connect To, Control Panel, Devices and Printers, Default Programs and Help and Support didn't show. The %temp%\smtmp folder was present, but all the short cuts there were restored.

I restored the right side menu by right clicking on the start button and selecting properties. Then Customize button on the Start Menu tab. On the bottom of the Customize Start Menu is a button "Use Default Settings" I clicked that button, then okay and close and all the right side options showed again.
