Re: missing shortcuts
 
Milla,

Please see the RESOLUTION part, if the 821557 update is unavailable in Add/Remove. Call MS for a hotfix.

Re: missing shortcuts
 
Removing the registry key does not uninstall the hotfix. See 821557 Removal instructions at:
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=821557

Or, call Microsoft and obtain the next hotfix.
