    Through Stupidity I have lost all the icons in Management Tools and wish to
    re-instate them, but don't know how. Your help would be appreciated.

    Thank You
    Milgar

    Thanks mark, I checked out this site earlier and it waswnt what i needed. To
    be more specific I am running Vista home premium and blew out the icons in
    Administrative tools not Management Toole in Control Panel. I also lost the
    shortcurs in Admin Tools on the Start Menu. Stating that i want to re-build
    the Admin Tools package.

  4. Is the following folder missing or empty?

    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Administrative Tools

    If so, you'll have to recreate the shortcuts that resided there. The
    following shows:

    Name
    Target
    Start in
    Comments

    Computer Management.lnk
    %SystemRoot%\system32\compmgmt.msc /s
    %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%
    Manages disks and provides access to other tools to manage local and remote
    computers.

    Data Sources (ODBC).lnk
    %SystemRoot%\system32\odbcad32.exe
    %SystemRoot%\system32
    Maintains ODBC data sources and drivers.

    Event Viewer.lnk
    %SystemRoot%\system32\eventvwr.msc /s
    %SystemRoot%\system32
    View monitoring and troubleshooting messages from windows and other
    programs.

    iSCSI Initiator.lnk
    %SystemRoot%\system32\iscsicpl.exe
    %SystemRoot%\system32
    Connect to remote iSCSI targets and configure connection settings.

    Memory Diagnostics Tool.lnk
    %SystemRoot%\system32\MdSched.exe

    Security Configuration Management.lnk
    %SystemRoot%\system32\secpol.msc /s
    <blank>
    View and modify local security policy, such as user rights and audit
    policies.

    services.lnk

    <blank>

    Windows Firewall with Advanced Security.lnk
    %SystemRoot%\system32\WF.msc
    %SystemRoot%\system32
    Configure policies that provide enhanced network security for Windows
    computers.

    The folder also contains a desktop.ini file with the following contents:

    [.ShellClassInfo]
    [email protected]%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-21762
    [LocalizedFileNames]
    Memory Diagnostics [email protected]%SystemRoot%\system32\MdSched.exe,-4001
    System [email protected]%systemroot%\system32\msconfig.exe,-126
    Reliability and Performance
    [email protected]%SystemRoot%\system32\wdc.dll,-10021
    Data Sources (ODBC)[email protected]%SystemRoot%\system32\odbcint.dll,-1310
    Windows Firewall with Advanced
    [email protected]%SystemRoot%\System32\AuthFWGP.dll,-20
    [email protected]%systemroot%\system32\filemgmt.dll,-2204
    Computer [email protected]%SystemRoot%\system32\mycomput.dll,-300
    iSCSI [email protected]%SystemRoot%\system32\iscsicpl.dll,-5001
    Event [email protected]%SystemRoot%\system32\miguiresource.dll,-101

    Print [email protected]%systemroot%\system32\pmcsnap.dll,-700
    Security Configuration
    [email protected]%SystemRoot%\system32\wsecedit.dll,-718

    You'll need to set the read-only attribute (use the attrib +r command) on
    the folder for the desktop.ini file to be processed by Explorer.
