My computer is working properly but there is an issue that the menu of All Programs is empty menu. 

I don't know what is the issue but the list of all programs menu is empty and not showing any program in the list. 

The programs are installed on the computer and working properly through shortcuts on the desktop. 

Now let me know what to do.

It is possible that a parasite of some sort has caused the issue.

You should scan for viruses.

Hello Zoobia

The Start Menu a User sees comes from two folders:
C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersStart MenuPrograms
and
C:Documents and Settings(username)Start MenuPrograms

Here (username) means your User Account configured on the computer.

You have to check those two folders.
