  1. LMAO Thank you, I really needed that.
  2. Damn, you are a miracle worker. All the icons are back in there place and shining like brand new. I take it this is the line you were talking about that showed the problem: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\RestrictCpl] "1"=- The main thing I don't understand is how this could have happened if it wasn't done by CCleaner, I run Norton on a regular basis, there is no one else who has access to my computer besides my dog (she's smart, but not that smart) and if it came in some attachment somehow wouldn't Norton have picked up on it when i
  3. TheFiresInTheSky, here is what came up in Notepad after running what you asked for: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer] "NoDriveTypeAutoRun"=dword:00000091 "NoDrives"=dword:00000000 "NoViewOnDrive"=dword:00000000 "NoDriveAutoRun"=hex:ff,ff,ff,03 "NoLogoff"=dword:00000000 "RestrictCpl"=dword:00000001 "NoWindowsUpdate"=dword:00000000 "StartMenuLogOff"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer\DisallowRun] [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\M
  4. One more thing before I go. I created a new user account and gave it admin. rights like you had written about and then scratched out. The end result is when I opened the control panel in this new account the icons were all there to be seen in their glory. I hope this helps you in some way. Keith
  5. I know how to copy/paste into Notepad but how do you save it into a .bat file and then run it, the only type of file I can see to save it into is a .txt file. You are starting to get way over my head with some of this, when it comes to this stuff you can call me Forrest Gump. To answer the question you had lined out, yes I am running Windows XP Home Edition. I am going to be away from my computer for three or four hours but I will check back in later tonight, so If you can think of anything else you want me to do later be sure to spell it out very carefully. Once again, I great
  6. This is what I get when I click on an item in category view, not all the items just most of them. The ones that don't open this window end up opening the window just like clicking on the icon. When I click Run > sysdm.cpl, ncpa.cpl, odbccp32.cpl, etc. the window for that item opens just as if I were clicking on the icon. Just to save a little time, I have system administrator rights, that's part of the reason the above image makes no sense. Eveything is as it should be except the icons are missing. I have tried going into Windows > System > sysdm.cpl, ncpa.cpl, etc. and
  7. I hope this is what you were wanting an image of, I couldn't think of anything else you would want although I don't know of what help this can be.
  8. I did as you suggested, it took about 45 minutes to do all the checking, the end result is that it did not replace the icons. It was a good try and I had my fingers crossed the whole time but I am still open to any more ideas. By the way, I finally got the System Restore to work, I didn't know I had to be in Safe Mode for it to do it's thing, I guess my machine is kind of picky that way. I tried running SR three times in normal mode with no good results but I ran it one time in Safe Mode and it worked perfectly, well except for the fact that it didn't restore the icons. I really do app
  9. Yes I tried System Restore, unfortunetly this is one feature of Windows XP that has never worked on my computer. Don't ask me why it doesn't, it just doesn't. Before you ask, yes it is turned on and no, I didn't use any other programs between the time I used CCleaner and the icons disappeared, that's why I said CCleaner caused it. If I sound a tad frustated it's because I am. Look's like my last resort is going to be a "Repair Installation", hope that doesn't screw something else up.
  10. Thank you for the suggestions but neither one worked. With the first one I went to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\don't load, where according to the instructions the missing icons were supposed to appear in the right pane only they were not there for me to recover. The second suggestion led me to a download that was supposed to restore the registry so the icons would appear back in the control panel, but that did not work either. So now I am open to any more ideas, thanks for trying.
  11. I would like to know what happened to the icons in my Control Panel, they were all showing until I ran CCleaner now the only icon in there is Display. Could CCleaner have changed me from Administrative to a regular user, if so how do I change it back. I have already reversed the registry backup with no effect. Wtf, every time I try one of these types of programs my computer ends up not right, it really would be nice if someone could design a program like this that doesn't end up screwing my computer over. Would someone have any idea of how to fix this mess, I would really appreciat
