type control.exe into your "start search" box - that should start the control panel, unless a virus has modified things.

You can go directly to these common functions within the Control Panel:

start cmd Function
appwiz.cpl Add/Remove Programs
hdwwiz.cpl Add hardware
ncpa.cpl Network properties
nusrmgr.cpl User accounts
powercfg.cpl Power configuration
sysdm.cpl System properties

Thankyou for your reply... Have just tried that, with still no luck. It just flashes up and disappears straight after. I must have a virus. Is there anything else i can do instead of reinstalling windows vista?

Have just been looked through the direct routes of the control panel and most of them work so i'm getting somewhere! Thankyou!

click start menu then click RUN then type command then enter. Now you have power to open most files including the ones listed above to directly open these files/progams like taskmanager which is taskmgr then enter .Type control enter if wont open type the files above to use control panel functions

I have had this grouble for months and HP and MS could not find problem.
I went in on windows update and when the window open, up in the address box, it says conrol panel, system and maintainence, and windows update. I clicked on control panel. When it opened I CLicked on edit and and when the window opens, I noticed the "undo delete" was highlighted. I clicked on it and everything has been working great since. It worked for me. Hope it works for you.
