Hello Experts,

Can someone please let me know why I'm no longer able to view the control panel when I click on it? A screen appears but then disappears.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Carlton

The last time I saw that issue (user, and a workstation) the system was so badly corrupted it had to be reinstalled.

Open an Admin Command Prompt and run SFC /SCANNOW. Allow to complete. Run it a second time and then restart the Server.

Does that bring back Control Panel?

That is the only way I know to get Control Panel short of run a Repair on the Server install or backing it up and reinstalling it.

Hi

Have you tried to

start run then type "control" hit enter       does that work?

Which account are you logged on the server with?

logon with a different account see if that works

Sounds like the user profile is corrupt to me.

Hi trgassijr

I tried typing "control" and I got the same response.

I'm logged on with Administrator account.

To the suggestion above by tgrassijr, try making a new account and make it a member of the administrators group.

If you right click on Computer, is Manage available?
