Help me keep my start menu organized whether Windows 7 likes it or not.

Why don't the programs on my start menu in Windows 7 stay where I put them? I keep my programs organized in categories: office software, stats, hardware, media, etc. yet whenever I reboot some programs have jumped back out on the top level of the programs list. How do I stop this?

I'm in Windows 7. I have edited the programs list under "all users" and deleted them from the individual user account start menu. It's always the same programs that jump back out -- for example WordPerfect Suite jumps out of my office category. The programs are still listed in the category where I had them, but get listed again at the top level menu.
Some of these are from installing updates (e.g. I update itunes and it adds itself to my top level of programs). I'd also like to stop those from putting themselves back at the top level, but at least that's a one time thing. Other programs move out whenever I reboot.
