Take a full backup then update it to SP2, no point troubleshooting an OS that is out of date.

If that doesn't work, create a new administrative user and login with that. Are the icons there. It may be that the profile your logging in with has it removed.

it's not a profile prob. i know for sure, creating a new user does not do it...no there are no icons AT ALL under administrator tools....

i can't try service pack yet as there are other probs. right now and software is working on it..

hopefully service pack 2 will act almost like a new load of o.s.

this did not solve the prob. and no more support was avail..chances are that windows will have to be reloaded as service packs and admin tools did not work...this would have been the most logical way to try though...thanks
