That torch thingy is the equivalent of the Hourglass.

How long are you waiting?

Hi HW,

Look in all programs to see if you've got 'Control Panel' loaded. It ought to be there but if it isn't use whatever disc came with your PC to repair Windows. Further, right click on the icon you are using to get to 'Control Panel', click on 'Properties' and look at what file is the target for the icon. It ought to be something like, 'C:\Windows\Program Files\Control Panel'. If it isn't make it so.
