    Just reinstalled my Vista Premium System (an HP System Recovery). I like the
    Classic View of Control Panel. However, when ever I bring up Control Panel,
    it always defaults to the Control Panel Home View. Why? Never had this
    issue before. How do I correct it so the it will return to the Classic View
    as the default? Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the references Spirit. However, I don't see the relationship with
    what is indicated in the referenced articles and my issue with the 'special'
    Windows folder for Control Panel. The Control Panel does not live by the
    same properties as other folders. When I used to select Classic View, it
    would stick. Now it always comes back to the Control Panel Home screen. Am
    I missing something here?

    Thanks Andre. I did the registry tweak and after the first restart, all that
    was shown was the Classic View Option. I was happy and thought I was set.
    After that, the control panel would still come up on the category default,
    but it would state that I had a permission error on the PC. I would still
    have to select the classic view option like before. What is up with this?
    Any further help. I never used to have this problem. Thanks again for any

    send me an email if you have not solved the problem with control pane
    classic view. I had exactly the same problem and accidently solved it.

    it posted.
