"Personalize" part of Control Panel causes explorer to restart but still is blank

Q: "Personalize" part of Control Panel causes explorer to restart but still is blank

When I either right click the desktop and choose Personalization or access through the Control Panel it's blank. Then when I try to access it again it says it's trying to find a solution to the problem and restarts explorer (not MSIE). But that doesn't allow me access to Personalization. Anything I should try?

I searched and didn't find anything here. Thank you.

Preferred Solution: "Personalize" part of Control Panel causes explorer to restart but still is blank

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.)

As it turns out, it may be a problem with using the Zune theme, which may be for XP. I'm not sure on this though. It disappointing because I really liked how things were looking.

I have searched to see if this was asked before without any success. Maybe someone has run into this problem before.
When I open "my computer" or "control panel" after I close it...it automatically goes into Internet Explorer as a blank page. Most of the time, when I close the IE blank page...it stops responding and I have the control-alt-delete to "end the program"
Thanks in advance for any help.

Possibly malware - anything openning ie on its own raises an alarm in my books. Post a HJT log to the malware removal section of the forum and let the experts take a look at it

the title says it all
on every attempt to bring system window from control panel or right clicking my computer explorer.exe crashes, problem is no minidump is created to include, and i do have it enabled from "sysdm.cpl\advanced\startup" so any suggestions ?
p.s : not really sure if dump files are created with normal crashes and no bsod , so if there is another way to trouble shoot this thing please indicate .

A:Explorer crash on running "control panel\system" no minidump created

Hello Nightmayor and welcome to Sevenforums.

Explorer Crashing

Here are some tips and tricks you could try troubleshooting the kind of problems you're experiencing.
Having crashes upon the .explorer usually reveals problems in the Windows Context Menu. I'd suggest you to download a software called ShellExView. The idea of ShellExView is to figure out, what shell extension is causing your explorer to crash.Use the software with this procedure- Disable one extension that doesn't belong to Microsoft. In many cases there are running 3rd party shell extension along Windows, and may cause the crash. If the crash persist, undo the selection, and proceed to the next non-Microsoft extension. Keep doing so, until you've found the culprit.

Download Malwarebytes. Malwarebytes will investigate malware and worm targets, and try to remove them. It's very handy in that manner.Run a full scan of it twice or more. In many cases it won't detect malware in the first shot.

To ensure Windows isn't broken, we'll recommend the sfc /scannow command.Here's how- Press Start | search 'cmd' | Right-click it
| open as Admin | type SFC /SCANNOW

SFC /scannow

If the steps didn't work, Create a new User Account on your system. The current user account you're using, may be broken and corrupted.

Best Regards,
Frederik.

You may want to reinstall the operating system.

Backupthe files that are importantto you before you reinstall.

The "New" installation will overwrite the current one

If you do not format your hard drive before the reinstall the installation should not harm your files (That's why I suggest backingup your files) and will speed up the installation process.

I accidently posted this in "Vista" so I'm reposting it here as the operating system I have is XP Professional.

I'm having a problem with "Display" in the Control Panel. Yesterday I visited a website and opened a file. After I did that, my wallpaper changed and it appeared to be whatever the website was. I was able to somehow get it off (don't ask me what I did, I couldn't tell you). Now, when I click on "Display" in the Control Panel and go to "Desk Top", the only thing that I can change is the color and I can also click on "Customize Desktop", but I cannot change the background or click on "browse...". Can you help?

You are using an outdated version of Hijackthis. Please uninstall from Add/Remove programs, and delete your current version.

Next, download HijackThis to your desktop

Alternate link

Double-click on the file you just downloaded.
Click on the "Unzip" button to install. It will by default install to the directory - C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis

Upon install, HijackThis should open for you.

Should it not open, navigate to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis and double click on HijackThis.exe

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. Do not post that log, instead, do this next:

=====================================================

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

Hi
When I right click on the desktop and click Personalize, I get an "Unspecified error" from explorer.exe.

I think am having the same problem as
explorer.exe unspecified error ?????!!!!
I tried the sfc but it found no errors. And no, Personalize is not showing in the Control Panel.

There was an article on the Micorsoft site that said you get this error if you have disabled Personalize from Control Panel. I haven't done that. Just to be sure I went to gpedit.msc > User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Control Panel and disabled "Show only specified Control Panel items"
Still the problem persists.

I think the problem might have started due to CCleaner, as mentioned in the linked thread. Can't be sure though, just guessing.

Any help will be appreciated.

You can try doing a repair or system file check...
Scan For Missing/Corrupt System Files...

Windows XP comes with a wonderful tool called System File Checker (SFC)
Itscans and verifies the versions of all protected system files after you restart your computer...
To Do This:
Click Start menu, and then click the Run icon.
In the small box that Opens, type the three letters: cmd then click the OK button.
In the command prompt window that just opened (a black background and white text), type the following command:
SFC /scannow
And then click OK
You must be logged on as a member of the Administrators group to run SFC..
You will need your Windows XP CD during this procedure if SFC needs to get an original file. Please remember that Windows XP can have multiple instances of a .DLL file and remember which version is for which program.
Notes....
I have been asked if it is possible to have a "progress meter" show when SFC runs... This is the registry hack you need. PLEASE do not go messing with your registry if you do NOT know what you are doing!

Hi

This usually happens when you dont remove the software completely, some process are attached to the Windows Explorer ... thats causing this.

Try using Autoruns and look under Explorer... and look for file that highlighted in yellow.. usually should say "File not Found". Uncheck or delete these and restart you computer.

Try these and let me know.

I'm having a bit of a problem. As far as I know, my comouter is completely free of viruses and spyware. For about a month and half now, I've been receiving the error message "Windows cannot open user accounts control panel" every time I double-click on User Accounts in Control Panel. I've been to many sites and I'm still stumped. I think the problem lies in the file nusmrgr.cpl being damaged or defective. If anybody can't offer me some advice or point me in the direction of a download or a recommended piece of software, I would really appreciate it.

P.S.

My computer is (obviously) Windows XP and I've already tried System Restore and Roxio GoBack.

I need help!!!!

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

As far as your log goes, please re-post it in the HijackThis forum section. Please click on the 5 Steps link below for instructions on posting a log. The HijackThis analysts will help you remove any additional spyware from your system.

A:Unable to open "Uninstall a Program" through Control Panel

Hello jason & welcome to SevenForums!

Have you been trying to deleting this program by deleting the folder in the DATA path? It would probably fail after trying to uninstalling in the control panel then.
Try looking for the path and see if it's there!

Also, try this well popular software, for a perfect uninstallation of a software:

Revo Uninstaller

I'm unable to access the Control Panel on my Win7 built-in Administrator account. On all of my other admin and non-admin accounts, I have no problem.

The control panel icon does not appear at all on my Start menu - if I do a search for "control panel", and then click the Icon, I get this message:

?This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer.

This message is then followed by a popup which says "Explorer.exe Unspecified error".

Any advice on how to fix this problem would be appreciated.

A:Unable to access the control panel - "this operation has been cancelled... etc"

If this just started try a System Restore. Otherwise from one of the User Accounts put Administrative Tools in the Start Menu and see if this gives you access.

A:Can not remove "System Security Center" Control Panel

Hi coupon,

Welcome to Tech Support Forum!

I apologize for the delay getting to your log. The helpers here are all volunteers and we have been very busy here lately. If you are still having malware problems, I will be glad to help.

OK, let?s do this first.

Go to the Start menu, and click on Control Panel. Choose Add/Remove Programs and remove any of the following that are listed:

NetMeter


NEXT:

Please run HijackThis and click "Scan". Place a check (tick) next to the following entries (if present):

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Personal Security Center Monitor] C:\WINDOWS\system32\psc_mon.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [NetMeter] C:\Program Files\NetMeter\HooNetMeter.exe


Close ALL programs and browsers (including this one), leaving ONLY HijackThis open, then click "Fix checked".

Then please exit HijackThis.


NEXT:

Please go to: VirusTotalAt the top of the page you'll find a "Browse" button. Click the "Browse" button and browse to next file:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\psc_mon.exe

Click "Open".
Then click the "Send" button at the top of the VirusTotal page.
This will scan the file. Please be patient.
Once scanned, copy and paste the results in your next reply together with a new HijackThis log.


NEXT:

Using Windows Explorer, please navigate to and delete the following FILES (if they exist):

C:\WINDOWS\system32\psc_mon.exe



Using Windows Explorer, please navigate to and delete the following FOLDERS (if they exist):

C:\Program Files\NetMeter



Please let me know if you encountered any problems finding or deleting the files/folders.


NEXT:

Please download CCleaner (freeware) and save it to your desktop:Run the CCleaner installer.
During installation process, please UNCHECK "Add CCleaner Yahoo! Toolbar".
Once installed, run CCleaner and click the Windows tab.
Select the following:Check everything under the Internet Explorer section.
Check everything under the Windows Explorer section.
Check everything under the System section.
Check ONLY Old Prefetch data under the Advanced section.

Then, click the Applications tab:UNCHECK everything there.

Next, click the Options button, then click the Advanced button:UNCHECK : "Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours".

Next, click the Cleaner button, then click the Run Cleaner button (bottom right), then Exit.

CAUTION : Please do NOT use the Issues button. This is a built-in registry cleaner. If you don?t know how to use it, you may cause irreparable damage to your system.


NEXT:

Let's run an online scan to make sure we're not leaving anything behind.

Please do an online scan with Kaspersky Online Scanner:Click on Kaspersky Online Scanner.
You will be prompted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, click Yes.
The program will launch and then begin downloading the latest definition files.
Once the files have been downloaded click on Next.
Now click on Scan Settings.
In the scan settings make sure that the following are selected:Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
Extended
Scan Options:
Scan Archives
Scan Mail Bases

Click OK.
Now under select a target to scan:Select My Computer.

This program will start and scan your system.
The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.
Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.Now click on the Save Report As button.
In the File name: field, type kavscan.
In the Save as type: field, select Text file (*.txt).

Save the file to your desktop.
Copy and paste that information in your next post.


NEXT:

Please reboot your computer normally into Windows, and then please post the log from the Kaspersky scan, the report from VirusTotal, and a new HijackThis log.

How are things running now?

Hi,

I'm trying to set Notepad++ as the default program for *all* file types that it can open, using Control Panel > Default Programs > Set Your Default Programs. I want to make N++ open every file type it can open, and so I don't want to do this by individual file extension.

Notepad++ does not show in the list of programs that I can set defaults for, and I see no option to add a program to the list. I've Googled this question to no avail. Can anyone tell me how to set a program that doesn't appear in the list as all its defaults?

Thanks.

A:Adding a program to "Default Programs" in Control Panel

When I right-click on a file to open it, I get the option to "choose the default program", and in there, you can eventually open a browser to use to find the app you want. That app then becomes the default program for that file extension.

Hey, I used the thread search here and found out how to remove the peper trojan my dad had on his computer, along with HSA.

The spyware has been removed, the computer is running splendidly. However, entries still remain in the "Add/Remove Programs" Control Panel. They all seem to be related to HSA, because like the entry for HSA, all they really do is open your browser and go to a page where it says you can download an uninstall program.

Does anyone know how to remove these entries from the "Add/Remove Programs" screen?

EDIT: nevermind, found out how to do so here

A friend of mine did who knows what to his computer using some data cleaning software, called secure clean. He set it to run and automatically shut down the PC when finished. Upon reboot, his taskbar was a different color, he was shown a message requesting that he log in with a user that has administrative privileges, his internet connection was gone (ipconfig showed 0.0.0.0 on everything, and ipconfig /renew said "RPC server unavailable"....even though the Administrative Tools>Services applet shows it to be "started").

System Restore is not an option, as it was disabled a month ago in hopes of solving another unrelated problem....

So... I'm gonna bet 10 bucks it's time to format the hard drive and start from scratch, right?
 

A:Control Panel is completely empty & ipconfig /renew gives "RPC server unavailable"

I think you win the bet since SR is the only way I know that gives the system a shot at recovery from such an event unless the program that did the offending work creates a restore file of its own (most just use SR if they do though).

You could try a system repair but since it seems all sorts of settings are missing and accounts have been messed with as well, it might be more effective to nuke if there's a good backup.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

I uninstalled that program several years ago, which has me questioning whether any of the programs I had uninstalled through control panel-add/remove programs, actually removed all traces of it. Searching for files containing that keyword came up empty. Could anyone explain?

Also, how come the folder of the programs I uninstall not get deleted under "program files?"
 

A:Inquiry about "control panel - add/remove programs"

Many applications have very bad uninstallers. They don't really care about what happens if you are so rude as to decide that you don't want their programs. It shows a lack of integrity, or at least knowledge.

Get another uninstaller, like Your Uninstaller, or one that searches the registry and folders for all parts of an application and removes them all.

Hello thefrogg

Try a system restore.

If that does not help
Do a search on your hard disk for appwiz.cpl
If it is there its should be in the System32 folder.

If its not there it may be corrupted, go to START >RUN and type SFC /SCANNOW and hit enter.

Have your XP CD ready as it will ask for it.

In Windows 8.1 Update 1 I cannot change file associations whether I try to do so from Control Panel or from within an application. For example, here's the popular VLC Media Player file association preferences:
I cannot select (put a check mark) or de-select (remove a check mark) from any individual file association. If I click on the selection box, nothing happens. I have the same problem even if I open the application with elevated privileges. I can check the Select All box and all associations will be selected, but that's all I can do.

I can go to individual files and choose Open with and that association will stick, but it's far easier to select an application's default file associations at one time.

How can I make the Default Programs control panel set file associations?

A:can't access "game controllers" in Control Panel

Well, I managed to sleuth this out. I figured it had to be a conflict caused by the legacy (Win 95 vintage) MS Sidewinder joystick. So I went into Device Manager and selected Human Interface devices. Everything there had a name except one that was merely listed as a "HID-compliant device". I figured that had to to be the Sidewinder so I disabled it and lo and behold, the Game Controller selection in Control Panel was operative again! I opened that and deleted the MS Sidewinder and then went back into device manager-HID and deleted the driver. Too bad that some Win XP update caused this issue. The joystick was perfectly good and worked with XP without issues for many years. Now dxdiag runs with no issues and reports the keyboard, mouse, and Logitech stick. All is well again. :-)

Hello,
I couldn't find in control panel how to configure Outlook 2007 profiles. I found the answer on this forum:

Classic viewdoesn't have Mail either. However, I found the mentioned file, double-clicked on it and everything can be done. My question is:

how the hell can it be that configuring email is not present in control panel?

I can of course create a short-cut to this file and place it on my desktop (apparently can't place it within Control Panel), but I'd definetely like to have a cleaner solution. Any advice?

Thanks in advance

When I try to open "Control Panel" it gives me an error dialog box that says Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. "Control Panel" has been taking longer and longer to load, but now it just stops. Running Windows XP Service Pack 2. Suggestions?

A:control panel - "add/remove"

There should be a folder in Program Files. Is there an uninstall file in there? If so, use that. Also I got this from another site:

Uninstall Juno steps:

1. Click on the Windows Start button, select Control Panel.

2. Double-click on the Add/Remove Programs icon.

3. Click once on Juno to highlight it and click on the Add/Remove button.

4. Click OK then OK again and close the Control Panel.

5. Click on the Windows Start button, point to All Programs and select Windows Explorer.

6. Double-click the Program Files folder in the left-side window.

7. If you see a Juno folder, highlight it and press the Delete key on your keyboard to remove it.

8. Close Windows Explorer.

9. Double-click the My Computer icon on your desktop.

10. Double-click the Dial-Up Networking icon.

11. Click once on the Juno icon to highlight it and press the Delete key on your keyboard to remove it.

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

And this:

Cannot uninstall Juno

I am running both the 32-bit W7 OS on one machine and the 64-bit OS on another machine. Love it!, BUT on the 32-bit machine a lot of commands don't seem to work. For example, when I click on Control Panel nothing happens. Same is true with Personalize. Anybody got any ideas what the problem is and how to fix it. I may be posting in the wrong place, but this seemed like as good a place as any.

This is my first post here. I have exhausted all other options and hope someone can give me some direction here. I'm running Vista and have had a recurrence lately when i try to open "my computer" I get the error message "windows explorer has stopped working and needs to restart", then it cycles and the second message appears " windows explorer is restarting", however I still am unable to open the folder. I have tried updating drivers, changing antivirus programs, checkdisk, i ran hijack this the log is below. I also started in safe mode and DO NOT have the problem in safe mode. Any ideas?

I attached the hijack this log seeing it won't allow me to paste it here, sats it has links in it.
 

A:"Windows Explorer has stopped working and needs to restart" in Vista,

Sounds like an infection (or a driver issue due to the fact you can access via Safe Mode). The best advice we can give you is to go to our Virus and Malware Removal forum.

Normally we would say to read the 8 step sticky and follow it step by step and when you go to post attach the required logs.

However, you can't access the internet on your possibly infected system. I would still post there and let them know of your issues. Either Bobbye or Broni or someone else will see your post and give excellent suggestions and help.

Make sure the tile of your post is solidly descriptive such as "Help: Can't Access Internet to Run 8 Steps" or some such thing.

Good luck.

Hello ,

Hewlett Packard came out with a fix to solve the problem of wallpaper being stuck on Stretch.
Although it started its life as an HP fix, it also works with non-HP machines.

Try this : ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp45501-46000/sp45575.exe

Maybe the best thing to do is to restore it to it's factory new state again and start over.

You can usually do that from the Start Menu or by pressing a Fn key during boot.

Welcome to Seven Forums bobbot11. Help us understand. When you 1st open IE, it opens to a blank page instead of your home page? Or is opening new tabs that open a blank tab? Or is opening a new window that opens a blank window?

If IE is opening to a blank page instead of a home page you have set, try re-registering IE.

Download the IE Restorator, and choose Re-register 32 bit IE in (whichever version your OS is) W7

Hi,

I've recently noticed two entries at the top of the Task Manager which have blank "user name" and "description" fields. The first entry is about 1,300K, and the other is 660K.

When I right click on either, I can select "Perform Administrative Task". If I choose to do so, the blank entries disappear, and the "show processes from all users" box is checked.

I wonder if this is a security issue that Spybot, Windows Defender and AVG Free haven't picked up.

Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Windows XP SP2

Ok, I tried some things in other threads but to no avail. But some threads are having my same problems. First this about:blank crap is always my home page even if I change it, as well as these porn links in my favorites list. I've run scans with 5 different virus/ adware scan programs but it doesn't fix it. However, it got even worse-- I can no longer open things like My Computer, My Documents or even Control Panel to try and uninstall software. When I try to open any folder my computer freezes temp. and I get the following message: "DrWatson Postmortem Debugger has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

PLEASE Somebody help me. I have hijack this, if that helps. AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

When I right-click on an open portion of the desktop, the dropdown menu that appears has two Personalize buttons. One takes me to the correct personalization window. The other doesn't. Clicking and right-clicking on that button brings up a window that says "Your Windows 7 edition is not supported." How do I delete this second Personalize button?

Thanks.

A:Delete one of two "Personalize" buttons

That's an interesting one, did you install something that may have added that?

You didn't happen to install the program in option two of this tutorial did you?

Desktop Background Wallpaper - Change in Windows 7 Starter

I know it adds the personalize option to Starter and Home Basic versions.

We have a tutorial to remove personalize from the context menu, you can see if it removes both, the same tutorial shows how to add it back,

Only a couple of my chosen sounds play when I customize the sound scheme.
Shutdown/log off works.Open and close program sounds work.
I run as administrator without a password since I am the only one with access to this machine.Would not logging in with a password have anything to do with the sound scheme?
All the sounds play when I test them,just never when I have set them to play.
Neither windows log on or system start plays a sound,although I don't log on with a password,I still start my machine.
I do not use Aero.I use windows 7 basic theme with my chosen sound scheme.
Not a big issue,more curious than anything. I do get a welcome sound sometimes when I start up but that sound is not one I have selected.
