    This is the nifty little program that adds your start menu back.

    That works better now. I'm still not convinced you need a start menu though.

    Start Menu, Windows 7 Start Menu but it still sometimes has problems when shutting down windows even though they say they have sorted it.

    I use ViStart on an old XP box because I like the look of Win7 -- but haven't tried this on W8 yet.

    Also, Stardock just announced that they are going to be making a Start Menu replacement available for Win8 in the near future. Don't know if it's going to be FREE or not.

    I just tried Stardock's Start8 (they emailed me with a download link so it must have been released) and immediately uninstalled it. Yes it gives a Start orb but it then leads straight into a smaller version of Win8's own Start screen. So I've stuck with ViStart even though it has no right-click function on the menu, but at least it's a traditional Start Menu. ViStart also gives me an error at shut down, not too sure why.
