Preferred Solution: Cannot open my Computer, my Control Panel, my Documents or Internet Explorer

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Can you download and unzip HijackThis to a permanent folder of its own?

http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/downloads.html

Run it and select "Scan", then save the Scanlog and copy/paste the results here.

Also this has helped some people with similar IE problems. Try going to the Internet Options > Advanced menu (through the Control Panel applet) and uncheck "enable third party browser extensions"

For some reason, all of a sudden I could not open Internet Explorer, Control Panel, My Computer or Recycle Bin. I click on the icons in the desktop but nothing happens. With Internet Explorer, the arrow will get the little hourglass symbol next to it but it doesn't open. I can use Netscape to navigate the computer and I can open other programs. I'm assuming there is a problem that is based out of Internet Explorer since those other programs use the same type look. I've tried d/ling Internet Explorer Service Pack 6 but I run into some kind of error saying that it can't find all the components to install. Can anyone help me out? Let me know if you need more info. I've run a bunch of adware and spyware stuff too.

A:Can not open Internet Explorer, Control Panel, My Computer, etc.

Let us have a look-see.........

Please download HijackThis - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Double click on the program to run it.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Get HijackThis Analyzer and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in y if you agree. The result.txt file will open up in Notepad. Copy the whole result.txt log and post it in the forum. We do not need the original hijackthis.log (unless we ask for it). Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.

Firstly hello to everyone. Admin - Please move to correct section if in wrong place.
I checked my computer for viruses with NOD yesterday. It found a virus called Genetik trojan in WIN32. It also found problems with hg1.dll fil. It asked me if I wanted to delete it although other programs may use it. Stupidly I deleted it. Now for some reason, I can not open Internet Explorer, Control Panel, My Computer or Recycle Bin. I click on the icons in the desktop but nothing happens.
I'm assuming there is a problem that is based out of Internet Explorer since those other programs use the same type look. I've tried d/ling Internet Explorer 7 but it has not fixed the problem.
Can anyone help me out please? I am a teacher and use my computer daily in lesson - but now I've really messed it up. I can get access to the internet using Mozilla.
Thanks,
Dma.

Hi and welcome to TSF.
HG1.dll is not a Windows file so it is likely that an infection has caused your problems. Your best bet would be to run a Deckard's System Scan but this is going to be difficult if you can't access Internet Explorer. First of all, let's see if we can correct your system files using the System File Checker. Only do this if you have SP2 on your installation disc. Otherwise you will need to slipstream SP2 to the installation disc. Follow these steps (courtesy of Chauffeur2)

Insert the Windows? XP CD in your drive. (Hold down the Shift Key to prevent it from starting.)

Go Start > Run ...in the box type in sfc /scannow ?please take note of the space between the sfc and the /.

This is the System File Checker...it will scan all the Windows? core system files to ensure that they are in their respective correct places, and if not replace them from the CD.

During the scan you may be asked to Insert the CD, if this happens just go retry and let it do its thing.

One important point: While sfc is running, it is not advisable to do any other work, or have any browsers/programs running on the computer, until the scan is complete. (This process will generally take around 45-65 minutes to complete).

Once finished, remove the CD and reboot your machine...all should be "Normal" (hopefully).

Hi,

I have been using Vista for a few months, and nothing has happened, except the new IE always shoots me an error message and shut down itself. Last, night the same thing happened, when I try to open IE again, it shoots me the error message instantly, and it keeps like that after restarting the computer a few times. Also, when I try to open my computer, and everything else, including control panel, the same thing happens. I try to check if there were any new program running, because that may be cause by app clash, however I cannot find any. Now I can neither access to the internet, nor any files in my computer except those on the desktop.

Anyone has any clues or solution about that?

Thanks

A:[SOLVED] Can't open My Computer/Documents/Control Panel -computer crashes

Hi Anamarija and welcome to TSF !

Does the problem also happen in safe mode ?

Unplug all your USB devices. Use a PS/2 mouse and keyboard for the time of the troubleshooting.

Go to start => run and type chkdsk c: /R. You'll be prompted to restart the computer. Tell us if it finds any errors on the hard drive. If you couldn't see the scan's results you'll find them in the event viewer under application in the latest winlogon entry (click on the title of the source column to sort them alphabetically).

Did the BSOD or the errors in the eventviewer mention any .exe, .dll or .sys file ?

We'll need the .dmp files that you'll find in c:\windows\minidump, problem is you may not be able to browse your drive to zip and attach them with your computer. Copy them to some floppy or usb drive using the command prompt : start => run => cmd. Type copy c:\windows\minidump\*.dmp x: x being the volume letter that corresponds to your usb or floppy drive. Then with another computer zip them and attach the .zip file to your next post using the manage attachments button.

Double click the errors in the event viewer, click on the third button on the right (this copies the information in the memory) and right-click => paste the complete error message here.

Go to start => run and type devmgmt.msc. See if there are any devices with a red cross, yellow exclamation point or whatever in front of their name. If you find anything related to your webcam then right-click => uninstall it.

Disconnect from the internet physically, since you're using ZoneAlarm the next step will disable your firewall, make sure the ethernet cable is unplugged or the router is turned off.

Go to start => run and type msconfig. Go to the services tab and tick the "hide all microsoft services" box. Untick the remaining services. Go to the startup tab and untick everything. Restart the computer and see if the problem still happens. Each time you make changes in msconfig and restart the computer you'll get a warning about being in selective mode, tick the box before clicking ok so that the changes remain. If the problem doesn't happen anymore then retick the services and startup items one at a time, restart the computer and see if you can identify the culprit. Don't reconnect to the internet until you've reactivated the firewall and antivirus.

Do you have the XP CD ? If so use that CD to create an XP SP3 CD, we may need it later.

If the above didn't help then if it's indeed a driver that's causing the problem these articles from MS will help you finding and disabling it :

A:Installed XP SP2, cannot open control panel, internet explorer, etc.

I'm wondering if you didn't install SP2 (or SP3, I'm confused on this...) while the machine was infected.

Try running System Restore and go back to a day prior to doing any of these installs.

Did you have any odd symptoms prior to installing SP2 or 3 ?

It's a bit late to be doing either of these. What prompted you to do it? Was the machine having problems before ?

A:Please help me, I can't open my internet explorer, control panel and other programs.

Not sure if we can solve all those issues here, but I do see some items which are cause for concern. Before we begin, I need more information.

Please do this:

Download Deckard's System Scanner (DSS) to your Desktop. Note: You must be logged onto an account with administrator privileges.Close all applications and windows.
Double-click on dss.exe to run it, and follow the prompts.
When the scan is complete, two text files will open - main.txt <- this one will be maximized and extra.txt <-this one will be minimized
Copy (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the contents of main.txt here.
Please attach extra.txt to your post.
To attach a file to a new post, simplyClick the[Manage Attachments] button under Additional Options > Attach Files on the post composition page, and
copy and paste the following into the "Upload File from your Computer" box:C:\Deckard\System Scanner\extra.txt

Click Upload.

What DSS will do: create a new System Restore point in Windows XP and Vista.
clean your Temporary Files, Downloaded Program Files, and Internet Cache Files, and also empty the Recycle Bin on all drives.
check some important areas of your system and produce a report for your analyst to review. DSS automatically runs HijackThis for you, but it will also install and place a shortcut to HijackThis on your desktop if you do not already have HijackThis installed.

When I open My Computer, Control Panel or any other folder that requires explorer.exe to run, the system crashes, the desktop disappears and then reappears. I can then click on My Computer etc. with success but can only do this once. Basically every other time that I try to access explorer.exe the system crashes. The crash notes the error with atl.dll when opening explorer.exe. Atl.dll is not read only, and I've tried re-installing the file with no success. I've also tried moving all .cpl files out of the system32 folder but it still crashes when opening Control Panel.

Any help would be appreciated.

A:Can't Open My Computer, Control Panel Or Use Explorer.exe Without Crashing

From another post that I made:Next, please go to Start...Control Panel...Administrative Tools...Event Viewer. Once Event Viewer opens there will be 3 categories listed in the left hand pane (Application, Security, and System). Please click on each one (in turn) and view the messages for that category in the right hand pane. Look for any error messages around the time of the last problem. Then right click on the error and select "Properties". In the window that opens will be a text description of the error - please copy it down and forward it to me. The error text should generally be in the format of 0x0000007a - with the last 2 letters'numbers changing depending upon the error. Also, usually another 4 sets of these numbers follows the error message - they are important also. Finally, at times there is a file name mentioned with the error message - please let me know what it is.If there are too many errors to choose from, please let me know and we can proceed a bit differently. Also, generally speaking, the usual location for this type of error will be in the System category - but there is a possibility that it may be in the other areas. Please do not erase your log files until we're finished troubleshooting this issue.

Hello,

What happens when you try and open the programs?

Do you get an error message?

Try running a system restore back to a point before doing the updates.

Uninstall modem first.... then perform a system restore... when that’s done, reinstall modem with only the drivers... nothing more.

Let windows find them and when it does it will install only the drivers not the rest of the stuff on the cd... let me know if that works

Welcome to TSG

Hmmm, do you have an anti-virus program at all??

You definitely have signs of infection.

Download and run these:

Ad-Aware SE: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/

Install the program. On the bottom right corner of Ad-Aware you will see an option called "Check for updates now", click on that and choose "connect". Download the updates. Next click on "Scan now" on the left side of Ad-Aware. Make sure that "Search for negligible risk entries" is crossed out and not ticked. Choose "Perform full system scan" and click "Next". After Ad-Aware scans your computer, Ad-Aware may find some bad files on your computer so make sure you tick them all and choose "Next". It will ask if you want to remove those items so just continue. After removing the items close Ad-Aware.

Restart your computer

SpyBot: http://majorgeeks.com/download2471.html

Install and run Spybot S&D. Choose "Search for updates". Next choose "Download updates". After that, choose "Search and Destroy" and click on "Check for problems". If Spybot finds any nasties on your computer, make sure that they are ticked and choose "Fix selected problems".

Restart again

Move Hijack This out of the Temp folder. Have it in a permanent folder of your creation on the hard drive.

Then post a new log

Initially, I have an issue that suddenly I cannot open Windows Explorer and Control Panel and I am able to fix it by my self as in my post here (Can't open Windows Explorer/Control Panel for domain user).
Where the issue only appear if I login as Domain user.

But then, after I restart my laptop and login again as domain user, it happened again.
And only if I login as domain user.
Just curious that it is related with windows update or other update from other programs.

I search for this issue and I found that after updating new IE-9 it will have this issue.
Is it correct?
If 'Yes', how to fix it? Because I am not sure that I can use System Restore for my laptop.
And why it happen only for domain user and not with local user (local admin or normal user) ?
Thanks in advance.

A:I cannot open my Windows Explorer and Control Panel (Again).

Try running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If any problems are found run the scan 3 times rebooting in betwen eah scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

You could also see if there are any application conflicts by performing a clean boot.

A:cant open file explorer, control panel...

So basically, when you have the monitor with the high resolution connected, explorer.exe is not opening. It starts working again, once you lower the resolution to 1920x1080px or less.

Is there an error message? What happens, when you click a shortcut to start Windows Explorer? Really nothing?

If you check the system logs in the Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools > View Event Logs, do you then have anything useful in there? I guess there should be at least something...

Hi I need help About a week ago Windows started working in an abnormal manner on my PC I wasn't able to open File Explorer or Control open Explorer File 10 Windows or can't Panel Control Panel whether from the start menu or from Windows 10 can't open File Explorer or Control Panel basically any application that calls for those file explorer or control panel I tried running command prompt admin sfc scannow DISM Online Cleanup-Image RestoreHealth commands several times but that doesn't fix the problem at all As a last resort I downloaded a brand new Windows ISO file from the Microsoft site and performed a clean installation formatting my HDD Things were OK the first minutes but then the problem starts again with the each new installation of Windows I don't know what is causing File Explorer and control panel to crash maybe its a faulty driver or windows update itself I have installed Windows from that ISO file several times and every time after a few minutes of me doing nothing with the computer it fails again The first driver I update to be able to use my monitor is the nVidia driver

A:Windows 10 can't open File Explorer or Control Panel

Hi, do you have any such crashes in Safe Mode? Please try- you would not be using the Nvidia driver then.
(You could access Safe Mode via SHIFT + restart and work through the rather confusing set of menus to Safe Mode).

The clean installation would seem to eliminate 3rd party programs as it sounds as if you hadn't time to install any.
Can you find any useful reports in the Event Log? (See event viewer).

If you complete your system specs, someone might be able to offer advice on your hardware.
System Specs - Fill in at Ten Forums - Windows 10 Forums

Another completely different line would be a hardware fault, of course, as you say the problem developed suddenly with your PC, and persists after a clean install.

I ran combo fix before doing my research - SORRY SORRY!!!! Can anyone help me with this issue. Now I cannot open explorer, kaspersky, control panel etc. I am using Chrome browser on Windows 7. When the combofix ran it did indicate that it set a restore point.

Prior to running Combofix the system had been running slow and I had uninstalled a couple of programs that appeared to help but then ran across a posting of combofix which I thought would be another added measure of cleanup.

I cannot install and run the FRST logs because after downloading the exe file the run box will not open nor am I able to open explorer to run the file.

Thank you,

A:Ran Combofix - now cannot open explorer, control panel, kaspersky etc!

Lemmie guess, you do have full images of your OS partition, correct? After a local computer shop ran ComboFix and what else, I had to do a restore to a previous OS partition to fix the fix.

Hi there. I have been trying to open Internet Explorer and it tries to open and then just closes without loading. I looked at previous posts, and I realized I cannot open Internet Options in the Control Panel either. I have tried to run the sfc \scannow and a black window opens and closes before I can read it or even see the words in the window. I have tried to run in safe mode and that does not work either. I have tried to boot in Safe Mode with Networking and it says that my internet connection is working fine (and my Mac laptop is connecting to the internet through the same connection). Also, McAfee will not load and I cannot uninstall it. I think McAfee might have it's own virus that is causing the problems. Please help!

A:Can't open Windows Explorer/Control Panel for domain user

Hi,

Finally I 'fix' it by following other solution in this forum.
Because this issue only happen for domain user and not for local user, so I remove/delete the profile for domain user. And login again with the same domain user, to create new profile, and yohoo it fix the issue.

Here is what I've done:
1. Login as local admin (because as local user have no issue).
2. Open C:\Users folder.
3. Open for User folder that have issue (e.g.: c:\user\emir.yhy)
4. Make backup for all the files/folder inside it to other drive (flash-drive or whatever).
5. Delete/remove User folder (C:\Users\[user folder]).
6. Open 'Regedit'.
7. Go to "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList".
8. On the left pane, make sure it shows something like 'S-1-5-...'
9. On the right pane, check for 'ProfileImagePath' make sure it shown the user name that has problem. (see the attached file).
10. On the left pane, right click the folder and Export it for backup (just in case).
11. On the left pane, right click the folder and 'Delete' it.
12. Switch User (start - switch user).
13. Login as Domain User which have issue (it will create new profile).
14. Try to open 'Windows Explorer'. Tha thaaa... it fixed.

Next step is restore all files that we copy for backup.
BUT do not copy the files. Especially the shortcut. We need to re-create it again.
If not, you will find same issue again.

That's it. That's what I've done to fix my issue.
Hope it help for other who have same issue.

Regards,
emir.

Hi everyone,

First off I'm a new user, so apologies if I do anything wrong. I've done a few searches but can't quite find what I need.

I'm trying to sort out my sister's computer for her, which has gone a bit wrong.

Computer: Acer Aspire 5338

Symptoms: Internet explorer not working (does not open, although computer thinks about it slightly before hand)
Control panel does not load (non of the icons load, and it does not respond, has to be shut down by task manager)
Same problem with the Network and Internet box
Supposedly Safari works, but I can't get it to now.

Could it be a virus? Or a complete windows failure?

Quick help would be much appreciated!

Thanks,

Toby

Hi,

I'm using acer inspire OP Win XP SP2 relatively new laptop.

The prob is cannot open any prog associated with windows. when i click on "my computer" for example, it's just blink for a second then back to desktop. No msg whatsoever.

I cannot restore cause apparently the restore sys been off all this while so no earlier restore pt created. Yes, I can open these apps in safe mode but cannot do nothing/unistall.

It's just happened few days ago and no new prog has been installed. It does have malware such as yoog.com, mswbar but i can't do nothing without access to the drives.

please help. thanks in advance.

A:Cannot open my computer, my document, control panel etc.

If you laptop IS new, go to the manufacturer tech support. The warranty should still be good.

Have you tried logging on as "administrator?" If you can, and you can everything works, check your normal logon has Administrator rights.

Another option (screenshot):Right-click My Computer, select Manage
Expand [+] Local User and Groups
Select Users
If you do NOT see your normal logon user-name, right-click Users and select New User (screenshot) to create it. Of course use your normal logon User Name.

When your User Name is listed, right-click it and select Properties, Member Of tab, and add Administrators (makes you a member of Administrators).

Now logoff and re-logon.

Hi,

I have a serious error on a laptop that my friend gave me, she is a college professor and gave me her laptop to fix it but i have absolutely no idea what to do.

Laptop just seem to randomly stop working:
-Right click menu wont open no matter where or on what i click (left click works but wont run anything)
-Cant start anything, Contrpl panel, task manager, CMD, anti virus ... anything (only thing i can do is shut down)

She says this problem started few days ago, i've scanned for viruses but apart from some minor usual problems nothing major was detected.

I need help as to what could be causing this.

Edit: forgot to write this: problem appears random, sometimes laptop works fine sometimes this happens, i have not noticed any patterns when it appears (once i clicked my computer and bam, other time i ran Ad-aware and bam........ seems completely random)

A:nothing works, cant right click, open my computer or control panel etc

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

You can monitor the temperature of various things to see if that is the cause of the lockup. There are several programs that can do this, maybe speccy will be enough to leave up/running/visible. When it freezes, look at the temps in that screen.

You could also try a clean boot: Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

Hello and Welcome to TSF

Habe you tried running the System File Checker ?

Go to the Run box on the Start Menu and type in:

sfc /scannow

This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem.

Hi, recently I have been unable to open My Computer, the Control Panel or any folders on my laptop. There are no errors, they are just completely unresponsive. This first happened about a month ago, and after a week of getting no where, I reinstalled Windows 7 and that seemed to fix it for a couple of weeks, but it's now happening again and I'm stumped. I have tried running disk check and scannow, and had a look in registry editor but everything seems to be fine.

I've never run into a problem I've not been able to figure out, but I'm completely at a loss with this one. Because of this I'm unable to access any files so any help would be much appreciated.

Cheers!

Hi papafavour,

Go to C:\WINDOWS\system32 and locate rundll32.exe. Rename it to rundll32.bak. Now try accessing the Control Panel icons and let me know if this helped you resolve the issue. All the best!

This afternoon, my computer began crashing whenever I try to open one of the more important files, like my computer or the control panel. Everything works correctly on safe mode, and I've tried driver verification, but there's upwards of 200 unregistered drivers, so I'm not entirely sure what to do. Are there any drivers I should look for to move away from the system32 folder? Or is there any other way to solve this?

Also, I haven't installed any new software recently.

Thanks,
Matt

A:Control Panel Empty, My Computer in Explorer shows nothing

If it was my computer I would do a clean install following the procedure outlined in this tutorial:
Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

When you have finished with the clean install, then make it a habit of creating system images, so when things happen like what you are now experiencing you have a fall back option to restore you computer to the way it was. This will save you the time and effort of reinstalling your programs. I personally use Macrium Reflect and it does a good job.

How to start your computer in safe mode

Because XP will not always show you hidden files and folders by default, Go to Start > Search and under "More advanced search options".
Make sure there is a check by "Search System Folders" and "Search hidden files and folders" and "Search system subfolders"

Next click on My Computer. Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and "Hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
Click "Apply" then "OK"

Now find and delete these files:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\Kom.exe
C:\WINDOWS\System32\explorer32.exe

Also in safe mode navigate to the C:\Windows\Temp folder. Open the Temp folder and go to Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

Go to Start > Run and type %temp% in the Run box. The Temp folder will open. Click Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

Finally go to Control Panel > Internet Options. On the General tab under "Temporary Internet Files" Click "Delete Files". Put a check by "Delete Offline Content" and click OK. Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web Settings" button. Click Apply then OK.

Run a scan using RKill and then the other scans. You can reboot when one or more of the programs requires a reboot to complete  RKill Download
As RKill only terminates a program's running process, and does not delete any files, after running it you should not reboot your computer as any malware processes that are configured to start automatically will just be started again. Instead, after running RKill you should immediately scan your computer using some sort of anti-malware or anti-virus program so that the infections can be properly removed.

Hi guys,
I'm running Vista Home OS and had many problems recently booting. Almost every time it requires to run system restore before it boots. Now several desktop icons are not working - mainly the ones that allow me into the file system. Runnig "My Computer" opens "Computer Management Snapin Launcher". Running "Windows Explorer" or "Control Panel" gives an error message "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Associations Control Panel". I'm pretty sure this must be a virus messing up my registry but I've run AVG, AVAST and Spybot and nothing is being found. Any ideas how to fix any of this without reformatting???

I downloaded a password Documents locked/hidden My folder Control under Panel protection program called Folder Access It was causing lots of issues so I decided to uninstall it But when I did since I had My Documents folder password protected the whole folder was locked for some reason Now the quot My documents quot folder has a control panel icon on it and displays the control panel when I attempt to open it The folder properties under the control panel icon still show that the folder size is GB and has about folders and files which is about right for my documents but it is just an ordinary quot folder quot and not a quot File folder quot Also the folder has quot ec - aea- -a dd- b d quot next to it I believe this is the GUID for the control panel So all my data is still there but somehow is hidden under a second control panel link The system created another My Documents which is pretty much empty Can someone please help me make this folder accessible to me again or give me any ideas to change registries or find the lost files THANKS nbsp

A:My Documents folder locked/hidden under Control Panel

Personally, I would try reinstalling the program Folder Access and using the original password used to password protect the My Documents folder to unencrypt the folder.

After that I would uninstall the program.

My windows explorer.exe has been crashing for the past few months when I open up a folder (e.g. My Documents, My computer). It doesn't happen everytime and I think I need to have all the folders closed and then open one up for explorer.exe to crash.

A:unable to open control panel or "properties" of My Computer

Can you get to the system properties if you go into Control Panel > System? (Classic View)

Also, you can try opening regedit (Start > run type "regedit" w/o quotes) and navigate to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

Delete the keys:
NoPropertiesMyComputer
NoControlPanel

If the NoControlPanel key is not present you can find it most likely in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer

Hi and welcome to TSG,

Do you remember what the error message said?

Let's see if it's spyware related:

Please do this. Click here: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html to download Hijack This.

It’s very important that you save it to its own folder on your hard drive, such as program files (not temporary files or the desktop), so that it can create proper back-ups and be able to restore them if necessary.

Close all open windows and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and then save it to NotePad. Click on “Edit” – “Select all” – “copy” and then “paste” into the thread.

DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET, most items that appear in the log are harmless or even needed.

Suddenly and for no apparent reason Control Panel will not open on my Win 7 64-bit computer. If I go to the Start Menu and click on Control Panel link there, an icon for the Control Panel appears on the task bar, but no Control Panel window is open! If I move the cursor over the icon on the task bar I can see a miniature version of All Control Panel Items, but NO LARGER CONTROL PANEL WINDOW will open. Weird. If I just try clicking on the task bar Control Panel icon nothing happens, unless I right-click on it and click <Close Window>, then it will close. Other links to the Control Panel also fail to open the actual Control Panel, and merely produce a task bar icon. Has anyone ever encountered this before? Any clues as to how to fix this? Thanks for any and all advice!

A:Control Panel Won't Open!

You could try a system restore to a point before the problem occurred.

If that doesn't work you could try a full anti-virus scan with Malwarebytes.

Check to see if there are any corrupt or missing system files using scannow sfc.

To do this simply go to the Run box on the Start Menu and type in:

sfc /scannow

This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem.

Umm, I keep trying to open things from the windows xp control panel and nothing is happening.


I don't know what the problem is.

A:Cant open anything in the control panel?

hello ,

now what i need to do is go to your (device manager)

now once there you will want to select from the toolbar of the window(veiw) then a drop down menu / from it you will select (show all hidden devices)

now if you see any (red or yellow) quotation marks , make a note of what they

now go to the (event veiwer) this is thru the (administrator tools) in the control panel
here you will find 3 to 4 subcatagories

you will want to check each of them for this is where windows keeps track of all errors
now you will want to make notes of the errors that have been recorded ( you do not have to make notes of double entries just of the dates of their happenings & how many there is)
you will get more information on the errors if you (right) click them / then select properties


also


do you have a Windows Xp cd, not the restore cd's that come with some systems, the cd will have the Windows logo & 3D hollowgram/image on it

if you do not maybe you can barrow one from a friend/family member/co-worker as long as it is the same version that is on your system

if you have (Windows XP Home Ed. sp2 ) then the cd will have to be that / if you have a cd with (Windows XP Home Ed. )you will have to sliptream (SP2 ) onto a disk that you create

this also applies to (Windows XP Professsional )

http://www.helpwithwindows.com/Windo...p2-bootcd.html

now if you do have the Windows XP cd with sp2 please follow these steps

--------------------------------------------

performing a (sfc) system file checker

It is a scan that checks the core files & dlls of the (os) operating system and replaces them if they are corrupt or missing with the correct original version

start

#1 then select (run) , then press enter
a window will open
#2 type in ( cmd ) then press enter
another window will open
#3 type in ( sfc )then press enter
another window will open
#4 type in (sfc /scannow ) then press enter ( notice the space between the (sfc & /)

now a scan will start , have your (Windows XP software disk ready ) your pc may ask for this disc when it starts or during the scan( so you must sit with the pc while this scan functions ) , if it does then incert the cd into one of your cd/rom/player's , your pc will then reconnize it and continue , you will then have to minimize the splash screen for the cd to see the scan , when the scan is finished you will need to close the cd and all open windows , then remove the cd

you will then need to do a ( Disk Cleanup ) , then empty the caches & temp files thru the (Internet Options) , then do a defrag

restart your pc

then do a defrag again after the reboot


also follow this link

Hi,

My control panel will not open.
If I click on it, my desktop top screen goes to a solid blue color (like you are ending the process of Explorer) and then my desktop comes back.
I have run my virus scan with all the latest dat files and no viruses are found.
I am unsure why this has started happening.
Has anyone experienced this before and what is the fix?
Oh, I have also gone into Safe Mode as Administrator and the same thing happens. I have cleared out my temp folders under every user name and that didn't help either.
