Windows XP Pro Administrative Tools are not visible

Posted on 2004-10-25
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I have a Windows XP Professional PC that shows a blank window when I try to open Administrative Tools from the Control Panel.  I have expanded and replaced the *.clp files in the C:\windows\system32 directory from the operating system recovery cd and used regsvr32.exe to reregister shell32.dll.  I have been able to run some of the clp files directly from the c:\windows\system32 directory.  Is there another file of files that need to be replaced or reregistered to correct this situation or are there other things to be checked to correct this situation?
Your help is appreciated!
