    I've seen this since RC2, but have waited patiently. Just installed Vista RTM.

    If I run the Control Panel from the Start Orb, the control panel never
    appears and I see control.exe hanging out at 100% CPU (actually 50% CPU on my
    Centrino Duo Core, but you know what I mean).

    I see the same behavior if I right-click Computer from the Start Orb and
    select Manage..., with CompMgmtLauncher.exe hanging out at 100% CPU.

    I can access the control panel no problem via Explorer.

    Any ideas?

    I am running as a Limited User, and in both cases
