Broken Control Panel, Windows stopped working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I believe there has been some threads regarding this issue. But so far I have not been able to fix it despite looking through the threads.

    The only thread that I really found useful was from this, but I didn't want to re-activate an old thread


    I'm having the exact same problem as the last 2 people, I have tried out with the .cpl file checking and these were the ones I'm having problem with:

    • appwiz.cpl
    • desk.cpl
    • powercfg.cpl
    • wscui.cpl
    • Firewall.cpl
    • hdwwiz.cpl

    I would really appreciate a solution for this, I am not an expert in computer so I would also appreciate the terms to be as simple as possible.

    Thank you so much!

  • Have you tried to log in to safe mode and check whether your control panel ites are working? If it is working this may be due to a thirdy party software or malware.Scan your pc for malware.. http://www.microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-us/default.aspx

    and have u tried sfc/scannow ?

    to use sfc command open a command prompt run as administrator and type sfc/scannow

    this will fix corrupted system files..
