Is this in Control Pannel?
Did you install anything lately that may have caused this?

Please give more information on your situation so we can try to help better/

It may be because your machine has a problem reading the display.

Another reason is if the File to open the Display has moved. You would get a 'generic' icon

Try this: Go into Safe Mode, and see if you can Click on Display, and get in.

Let me know.

Usually this is due to a missing or corrupt desk.cpl file in the windows\system directory.  You will first want to search for this file in the windows\system directory and see if it exists.  If it does, then you very well might have a corrupt file.  Either way, you'll need to replace the desk.cpl with a new copy. You can either find a similarily-configured machine and copy it onto a floppy, or extract the desk.cpl file from the 95 CD.  Be sure to rename the desk.cpl that is currently there, just in case.  Good luck.

Excuse me, snowolfe.  I hadn't even read your comments.  I simply saw the question, then gave an answer.  If you truly NEED the points, I beg kingmari to give them to you instead of me, if that is indeed the answer to his question.  Cheers.
