Admin tools/Computer managment

  ianhad 12:18 30 Mar 2006

When I go into Admin Tools all I get is Event Viewer.
No Computer Managment. Any ideas how I get it all back? Ta.

I have to say i dont know how to get into admin tool's,but you should be able to get the computer managment console by right clicking my computer and selecting manage.If that is admin tools,forgive me i have never heard it called this before)

Are you logged on as an Administrator?

Fruit bat, as far as I know I'm the administrator, I'm the only user. Every thing was OK till I ran one of those file cleaner programms!

You can reinstall the admin tools from your xp disc in the value added folder

If you use System Restore to roll back to a date before you installed the file cleaner, this should rectify the problem and get rid of the crappy software, both at the same time.

Remember that it will also lose any other software that you might have installed since your chosen roll-back date.

crosstrainer, have looked in valueadded, can't find anything that looks OK.
Can't use system restore as that is part of system tools/management.

Try a system file check Start/Run/type sfc /scannow you will need your XP CD

Start, Run, type


and click OK to launch System Restore.

There is a fix click here to recreate the shortcuts that you've lost from the Administrative Tools Folder. Scroll down to Case 2 and you will see the AdminTools fix. However, as far as I know, the Computer Management Shortcut isn't normally in the Administrative Tools Folder.

If you go to the C:\Windows\System32 folder you'll find COMPMGMT in there. You can create a shortcut for it. and place it on your desktop and then drag it into the Administrative Tools Folder in Control Panel.
