    This not a case of virus here , it is just a trivial change in the settings , and to make it default perform them the following steps :

    1) Go to the Taskbar and right-click on it and select " Properties " .
    2) Click on the " Start Menu " tab and then click the button " Customize " .
    3) A new window would emerge and scroll it downwards and check on the button " Sort all Programs Menu by Name " .
    4) Then press " OK " button to apply changes .

    This would re-arrange all your programs in start button in alphabetical way .
