    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

    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:

    Start in

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

    Data Sources (ODBC).lnk
    Maintains ODBC data sources and drivers.

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

    iSCSI Initiator.lnk
    Connect to remote iSCSI targets and configure connection settings.

    Memory Diagnostics Tool.lnk
    Check your computer for memory problems.

    Print Management.lnk
    Manages local printers and remote print servers.

    Reliability and Performance Monitor.lnk
    %SystemRoot%\system32\perfmon.msc /s
    Diagnose reliability and performance issues and collect performance data.

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

    Starts, stops, and configures Windows services.

    System Configuration.lnk
    Perform advanced troubleshooting and system configuration

    Task Scheduler.lnk
    %SystemRoot%\system32\taskschd.msc /s
    Schedule computer tasks to run automatically.

    Windows Firewall with Advanced Security.lnk
    Configure policies that provide enhanced network security for Windows

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

    [email protected]%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-21762
    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
    Task [email protected]%SystemRoot%\system32\miguiresource.dll,-201
    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.

    Good Luck,
