Solved: missing control panel option ???

Q: Solved: missing control panel option ???

Hi
Ive just switched From win 2k to xp pro (no sp yet) so i hope this isn't just me being dumb

I'm trying to resolve some hardware issues by installing / reinstalling but when i go to the control panel all there is is "ADD HARDWARE"

unless I'm mistaken this panel should read add remove hardware? This is the same for all user accounts including the default administrator account which i have never used or altered.

Please could someone give me a clue as to how to restore this option, or let me know if I'm being dim and its supposed to be that way.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello All,

I have been trying to solve a Zone Alarm problem, but the fix seems to have turned into a Windows problem. I hope someone can help me.

I've used ZoneAlarm Security Suite for several years now, but during the past year I have been unable to install upgrades. Usually the process gets stuck during the uninstall of the old version. SO this time I tried to manually uninstall first. It seemed to work (via Add/Remove Programs) and then I tried installing the new version, but it got stuck while copying files over.

On the Zonealarm Forum I got some help from someone who gave me some instructions to follow to "completely" uninstall all zonealarm (zonelabs) files. Following these instructions (which I'll post below) appeared to have removed Zonealarm, but I still could not install the new version - it got stuck at the exact same point while copying files over.

So now I don't have the old version and can't install the new version.
Now to the Windows problem. (Thanks for your patience)

Everything else on my PC seems to be working fine. Email, internet, other programs...but then I went to use Photoshop Elements and it started up by showing me the user license and asking for acceptance (which it hasn't done since I installed it over a year ago). I accepted it and then got the following message:Your Adobe Photoshop Elements username, organization, or serial number is missing or invalid.

A:Missing Add/Remove option in Control Panel

Hello and welcome to TSF


Click Start, Run and type REGEDIT. This starts the Registry Editor. Navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE \Microsoft\Windows \CurrentVersion\Uninstall\<Program Name>
( <Program Name> here is Adobe Photoshop Elements)
*
In the right-pane, do the following:

Double-click NoRemove (REG_DWORD) and set it to 0
Double-click NoModify (REG_DWORD) and set it to 0

If NoRemove is set to 1, the Remove button will be unavailable
If NoModify is set to 1, the Change button will be unavailable
info

This should help with Adobe Photoshop Elements.

Now, for ZA.

Try using the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility. As long as you installed the application using the Windows Installer, this utility will remove all the folders, files, registry keys, and entries from your system and allow you to start over with a clean slate.

Download the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility
Locate and run msicuu2.exe to install the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility.
Locate and launch the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility on the Start menu.
From the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility window, locate the application in the list and click the Remove button.
Once the application has been removed, click the Exit button to close the utility.

My Control Panel has for some unknown reason changed from showing the Icons and Titles in rows, left to right to a single column list. I cannot get it to view in the manner I prefer (left to right in rows). There used to be a clickable way to change it back and forth but nothing is allowing that change anymore.
Edit addition: I also notice that in Control Panel I no longer have a "Display" icon.

Hello all:
I've been doing some research and this appears to be a common problem that I cannot find the solution to.
My Dell Inspiron Laptop somehow got a trojan. This thing kept saying "Windows has detected spyware infection. Click here to resolve" on one of those popups on the bottom right of the screen.
I ran A/V Symantec (it's up to date), it found some threats but the quarantine failed, and the delete also failed, they were basically acknowledgments. Then I ran windows defender and it found a program called spysheriff. I deleted it. The popup didn't come back when I rebooted. The problem now is that my user account which used to have admin rights now seems to be very limited, can't get to the calendar, the desktop settings, the control panel (start->settings->control panel) is totally missing! Every time I try getting to the desktop settings for example, I get a double popup that says "This operation has been canceled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator"
I tried booting in safe mode and using the administrator account to give my user account admin rights but it shows it as already having admin rights.
Anyone have any ideas? I'm pretty close to just doing a fresh install on this thing.

I had some pretty nasty popup issues with my PC along with a missing control panel and its program funtionality. Error Message (This Operation has been cancelled due to restriction in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administractor)

I followed some of the advise that MFDnNC gave Brass Man a while back for a very similar issue and I...
1) Ran Smitfraudfix in Safemode. (Cleaned)
2) Ran Superantispyware. (Cleaned)
3) Ran SPYBOT Search and Destroy. (Cleaned)

All of the pop issues seem to fixed, but I still cannot access the control panel and all of its programs. Could someone please give me some guidance?

A:Solved: Control Panel Missing

Download http://downloads.andymanchesta.com/RemovalTools/SDFix.exe and save it to your Desktop.

Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
(Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)

Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
Restart your computer
After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear;
Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter.
Choose your usual account.
Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt
(Report.txt will also be copied to Clipboard ready for posting back on the forum).
Finally paste the contents of the Report.txt back on the forum with a new HijackThis log

A few days ago I had some sort of malware on my system. It was a pop up that advertised that there was adware or spyware on my system. I knew it was junk because of misspellings and it kept popping up around every 5 minutes. I was able to get it cleaned off and removed, but then I realized I had another problem. I don't have a control panel and no administrative rights. They both seem to be seriously gone because I went into safe mode and even ran a windows repair install and added back all of the updates and service packs that were removed when I did the repair with the exact same result. What can be done about this? I'm the administrator account and don't know what to try next. System restore doesn't work for me either.

Hey guys this happened to me yesterday. I've got a feeling it may be a virus, however PC-cillin doesn't pick it up. I've run Ad-aware and removed a few files but it hasn't fixed the problem. My control panel is missing from the start menu. I also get a critical system error that says the system is restored after critical error. Error code is 0x01FFEFAC. It asks me if i want to install system error fixer and trusted antivirus. When I click no after a while a window pops up asking me if i want to download the shell.exe file from the internet.

Our laptop became infected with the XP Antispyware 2009 malware. It turned off our security center and Kasparsky Anitivirus.

We were able to remove the malware and clean the system but now the Security Center Icon is missing from the control panel. Under "services" it shows that Security Center is running "automatically" but I have no way to access the program without the icon (that I know of).

OS:
Windows XP Home Service Pack 3

Thanks for any help in restoring the icon. If I can't get this corrected, my only tought was to reinstall Service Pack 2 (have a disk which includes Windows Security Center) then run the windows updater and update it back to Service Pack 3.

Control Panel - Icons Missing

Click Start, Run and enter REGEDIT

Go to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\don't load

Look in the right pane and you'll see the Control Panel Icons that have been disabled. You can either right click on the "don't load" subkey and select Delete to restore all disabled icons, or you can right click on each of the items in the right pane and select Delete to selectively restore them. Scroll up to Control Panel Applets for a listing of what each one is.

The change will be seen the next time you open Control Panel.

Hi everyone, Have a problem with a missing control panel on my start menu. Also the start menu has a lot of space on the bottom and I get a message that the start menu Icons are full and that I should unpin some. Well as you can see from the picture below the start menu is not full. and my Control Panel Icon is missing.


Click Start, then right click any blank space on the start menu and left click Properties. Select the Start Menu tab at the top, click Customize midway down on the right and then click the Advanced tab at the top and see if the Contro Panel is selected for Don't Disply This Item. If it is select one of the other options, usually Display as a link, and then exit out and try again to see if it reappears. but its still not there




im sayin that in the Advanced tab there is no "Control Panel" to select

1. When trying to open existing or new graphic email attachments, the following error message appears: "This file does not have a program associated with it to perform this action. Create an association in the Folders Option control panel." Where do I find this?
2. Have not been able to download Adobe Flash Player. Each time I click "Download" nothing happens. Could the Norton security program be part of this problem?
 

A:Folders Option control panel

Right click on the attachment that won't open and 'save as', save to your desktop. Right click the file and go to 'open with' and choose which program you would like to open the files as a defualt. Make sure the 'Always use the selected appication for files of this type' checkbox is checked and open. Now when you open the attachment in outlook, it should load in the application you selected.
For Flash, go to www.adobe.com and search for standalone flash install. You should find the download page and be able to download a setup file to run locally which shouldn't be affected by norton or any other programs,
Hope this helps,
Stu.

Quick question, i am using a ATI radeon 700064mb pci and i was wondering what is the difference between, Display:

Plug and play = (name of card)

and

Default plug and play = (name of card)

What happens when i put it on default, more graphics, sound better, faster load times , what?

thanks.
 

A:Question about an option in my control panel

Hi U2K,
My guess is probably nothing. If the default means regarding a monitor that doesn't return a plug and play code to the os, it only allows the most common refresh rates at common resolutions.
If the card identifies the monitor properly, it should disable any resolutions or refresh rates that that specific mon can't or shouldn't run.

Hello Guys,

Since yesterday I have had this terrible problem that I could'nt rectify. After I lost all hope I found you guys. I've been reading through some of the similar posts on here but thought it's best to start a thread of my own to provide the exact scenario on my system.

My System Configuration :-

Win Xp Pro SP2 on AMD64 3000+ Build 2600

AV - AVG Internet Security 7.5.0.38

I also have SpywareTerminator with the AV shield.
The PROBLEM :-

A yellow triangle/exclamation mark is in my system tray. Clicking it says that my computer is infected and that I should download special 'antispyware tools'. ". It keeps referring me to some bogus spyware remover website (Regular PopUps on my Desktop) and also prompts to download Win AntiVirus Pro 2007.

I have lost link to my Control Panel and right-clicking on my desktop gives me a pop-up that says that there are Restrictions in place on my PC and I should contact an administrator even though I am the only Admin User (Only Account). I believe I cannot make changes to the Registry either.

The good thing is that I am able to access the net and Pc is working quite fine even now.
But I would really like it to be clean and troublefree again.
As I noticed in similar Threads, I've downloaded SmitfraudFix & HJTInstall and have run the scan.

I have XP Home SP3 generally running quite nicely but the other day I noticed when I opened Control panel that the Task Pane no longer gives the option of viewing it in either Classic view or category view.

I have it set for classic view as this is my preference. So there is no problem from my angle. It's just not possible to switch back to category view if I ever choose to in the future.

Kelly's Korner gives a tweak to set the view either way but this does not reinstate the option on the task pane.

Just in case someone is going to suggest it, No I can't do a system restore because it is turned off.

Any help with this would be appreciated.

Cheers

Hello jackisback

This may be what you are looking for.

Open Control Panel > click tools > select Folder Options > under General tab select

"show common tasks in folders"

This should get the task pane back if you want it back in the future.

Hi, I came across this issue while trying to solve another, the issue of the annoying on-screen caps lock indicator (solved using this method). Many of the solutions I found involved going to control panel-->Display and choosing "Advanced settings" or right click on desktop-->screen resolution-->advanced settings.  My computer does not have a "Display option" in the control panel:It also does not have an "Advanced settings" or similar option in the display settings in the settings menu/through right clicking on the desktop and selecting screen resolution. Why is it seemingly impossible for me to edit anything to do with the display beyond a very basic level? Thanks.

Hi, A few days ago, I made a small purchase.
I bought 2x ZOTAC nVidia GTS 450's and a SLi Bridge connector.

I've read around that the SLi enable option should be available under the 3D section, with the PhysX configuration, but it's just simply NOT there.

Even GPU-Z says that SLi is disabled!

The video cards are installed, I disabled my onboard video from my Motherboard Bios.
But still, it does not let me SLi those bad boys to squeeze max performance out of my pc.

What should I do?


Code:
Video Card:
2x http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814500187&cm_re=ZOTAC_GTS_450-_-14-500-187-_-Product

Code:
SLi Bridge connector:
http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=10450BD3820&vpn=SLI-12CM&manufacture=ARCTIC%20COOLING

A:Dual GTS 450's in SLi. Option does NOT appear in nVidia Control Panel.

For starters you cannot run SLI on an AMD chipset, you need a motherboard with a Nvidia chipset. Short of replacing your motherboard or running a single card, there isn't much you can do other than returning the cards and going with a single card or getting two AMD cards to run in Crossfire if you want dual cards.

Personally I would return them and go with a single card. For what you paid for those two (or at least the price on Newegg at the moment) you could have got a GTX 470 or HD 6950, either of which performs about the same (or a bit faster in some cases) as 2 GTS 450's in SLI.

I've recently had to reinstall Windows 7 Ult 64, and now I'm only getting stereo sound out of my 5.1 system. Going into Sounds/Diagnostics in control panel I see there's only an option for STEREO, not 5.1 Surround. When I go to the Creative diagnostics and switch from 2/2.1 sound to 5.1 sound, the drop down menu immediately switches back to 2.1. Any suggestions on how to get my sound system fully functioning? I've disabled the onboard sound in the BIOS of my motherboard and made sure the connectors are installed correwctly.

Catalyst 5.11 drivers were the last to be bundled with the old control panel. At least with 5.11, there was an option between the old control panel and the new CATALYST .net control panel. We are up to version 5.12 and 5.13 and you are now forced to use the new .net Control Panel, the old control is now not an option anymore.
