 Replying to [comment:2 warmerdam]:

 installed OSGeo4W tree and then reinstall to see if the problem occurs

 I did this, and it did "clean" it up by removing the second QGIS shortcut,
 but I still see the double nesting "OSGeo4W > OSGeo4W > OSGeo4W Shell" as
 shown in the original attachment.

 In OSGeo4W/bin, I see:
 apache-install.bat    apache-restart.bat    apache-uninstall.bat

 Maybe the Shell PATH should also include OSGeo4W/apache/bin for the other
 Apache related programs from the CMD/msys shells?

 Also, I found the handy task bar control at
 OSGeo4W/apache/bin/ApacheMonitor.exe which I think is a good candidate EXE
 to add to the Start menu.

 Finally, it would make sense to group all Apache related programs into
 it's own group: Start > OSGeo4W > Apache
