Default XP Start Menu Problem.

Hello all and good morning. Got a strange one for you guys. Ok you know when right click on the task bar and go into the taskbar and start menu options and click on the start menu tab...usually you see two choices one that says "Start Menu" and another that says "Classic Start" menu.

I have a machine at work that ONLY has the option for classic start menu. Now some background...the previous user wanted the classic start menu for all users of the PC so we tweaked the local policy setting via GPEDIT to "force classic start menu". Now we have a new user and they want the XP style start menu, but it is no longer there as an option even AFTER we have disabled the "force classic start menu" policy. Any ideas how to get this option back either a registry hack or some other way? thanks all!
