Nah restore is a no go i dont have any points except those before i changed lots of stuff i want to keep.
I actually got it back by right clicking, going to properties, customize, and changing the number of programs displayed.
Weirdly tho.. the default is 6 supposedly, but when its at 6 thats when it looks like it did in the picture. Only when i set it to zero does it go back to normal but its obviously showing more than zero programs.. not sure whats going on there?
Guess it doesnt matter now its back to normal but still a bit weird. Ah well, thanks for the replie mate!
