Control panel admin tools all gone

All the icons in the computer administration part of the control panel have gone - the folder itself exists but it is empty.

All the other control panel bits are fine.

Is there an easy way of getting these back - I just need the computer manager so that I can administer local users and disks, view event logs etc?

Thanks

1) Try an  sfc /scannow and see if this helps.

2) Try to logon as administrator.

3) Try to use the Mange option by right clicking My Computer.

I hope this helps !

Hi,

Try this option if you can!

Goto My Computer and click C:\winnt\system32 and find the file lusrmgr.

You can administer with the users account.
