Control panel not working.

  bukkaz 11:16 28 Aug 2005

Had a problem with windows and re-installed. Everything OK except for when I try and open control panel. It opens up but only a few of the folders are actually folders and the rest are the white shape with colours in.

Any suggestions please?

Don't want to do anything daft as every other application and programme is working perfectly alright.

If I were you I’d drop the XP disk back in and type sfc/scannow at the command prompt.

Start->Run and type in "sfc /scannow" (without the quotations and note the space before "/")

You will need the WinXP installation disk handy

... if you use WinXP... lol

Thanks. It is XP. Stupid of me not to put it as it would help to state exactly what the problem involves!. Will give it a try.
