Modem.cpl quietly dies

When I try and install my first modem, I click on the
modem icon in the control panel. Unfortunately,
after a quick second or so of the hourglass icon, I'm
returned to the control panel.   No window pops up.

To further investigate, I tried directly running modem.cpl
with the same negative results.

Additional investigation reveals that SOME other control
panel icons also don't work, yet others do.

I copied a fresh version of modem.cpl onto my system, with
no change.

How can I install a modem?  Why do SOME of my control
panel icons not work?   Why does God hate me.

Try replacing your control.exe, it is probably corrupt (compare the file size with the one on the disk/cd)
