Windows 2008 Server - Control Panel not opening

Hi,

When I try to open the control panel from Start Menu - it momentarily opens up a dialog box with Windows Explorer on title bar on the top and black screen in the middle (nothing showing but black screen in middle) and then closes dialog box automatically.

When I go to Windows Explorer and click on Control panel it also doesn't show.

Secondly, I am not sure where to go to enter the license key for Windows Server 2008 - not sure if it is linked to this.

This is a new install of Windows Server 2008 R2.

Would appreciate some help here.

Kind Regards,
Raheel

Hi
If you go to the task bar property >> Start Menu tab >> Customize, you will see the option is "Display as a menu".  Click "Display as a link" and press OK, then come back to the same area and select "Display as a menu" will solve the problem
