      I don’t know if this the correct place to post this.

      Problem: When I try to open the Control Panel it just sits there for a few seconds and closes.

      I have check the web and this forum for a solution, but no luck.
      I can open most of the other .cpl files them selfs.
      appwiz.cpl does not open
      bthprops.cpl opens
      cmicnfgp.cpl does not open
      desk.cpl opens
      etc…
      The Personalize window never displays. “Right-Click on Desktop > Personalize”

      I don’t know what is causing this problem.

      Thanks for any help!

      Hello spyingwind,

      That’s a weird problem indeed. You can try to find out what’s causing the problem by using Sysinternals Process Monitor. Set as filter something like Process Nameisexplorer.exeInclude and look for abnormal activity while scanning for .cpl files. (ignore all FAST IO DISALLOWED results, that’s normal)

      You can also upload your zipped logfile so others can take a look at it.

      Hope you can find the cause of this problem!
