Control panel missing in windows xp pro


The problem in the registry. Go to start => run regedt and navigate to the following entries :

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
=> is there an entry called Start_ShowControlPanel and what's its value ? If it's different from 2 then set it to 2.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
=> in each location is there an entry called NoControlPanel and what's its value ? If it's different from 0 then set it to 0.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
=> is there an entry called NoClose and what's its value ? If it's different from 0 then set it to 0.

I am very much impressed by ur suggestion on my task manager problem.


So the task manager is now working.

if you want todo the same thing for regedit then you need to copy this text into the run menu and press ok

REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableRegistryTools /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

That should get the registry editor working again.
