Was installing a couple of programs on a new server 2008 install and after it had rebooted most of the administrative tools icons were missing and even things like configure your server are gone. Any help?

Ok for some reason it won't let me post a zip file, so...
all the .msc files are in %SystemRoot%\system32\
so sort by file type, selcet all the .msc files, then right click and create shortcut. You can then copy and paste these into the administrative tools folder

Thanks for the help, i managed to fix the problem before i had seen the reply. Luckily i had made a backup before the incident and restored the icons from there.
