I can not open the Control Panel. I click on it and nothing happens. Any ideas?

if dial a fix doesn't resolve it, do an SFC as control.exe could be corrupted/modified. (you'll need the cd you used to install windows if it finds anything to repair)

start -> run -> sfc /scannow

this behavior is also caused by a corrupted .cpl file.

Conveniently, SFC scan is in the Dial-a-fix Tools menu (click hammer icon). Also SFC purge, good to run before SFC scan.
