Hope this helps,

Good evening,

I've noticed a difference in Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Personalization between editions of Windows 10.

My wife's laptop is running Windows 10 Home, and her personalization screen looks like this:

I'm running Windows 10 Enterprise, and my personalization screen looks like this:

Notice that the menu options on the left, and quick access to change the theme settings on the bottom are missing from the enterprise screenshot.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Is it simply a difference between editions? Or is there a setting that is not turned on in my installation?

Thanks in advance!

I'm running windows XP on an old Dell Inspiron 1501 and I'm trying to get my microphone to play directly through my speakers so I can record them both simultaneously. The only answer I've been finding is to tick the 'microphone' checkbox in the volume control playback properties panel, but I don't have a microphone checkbox.There should be a 'microphone' box under SW Synth and CD player but I don't get one apparently.I've downloaded the latest SigmaTel Audio drivers from Dell and despite not having a problem with them before this, I'm inclined to believe that they're the problem. Any ideas?

A:No microphone control in playback Volume Control panel

Okay well of course I find an answer right after posting the topic:
http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3517/t/19295458.aspx
http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3517/p/18112824/18235810.aspx#18235810

Those two pages detail how to get an Input Monitor checkbox which functions just like the microphone one I wanted (although you can only mute it, not alter the volume). I used Instructional Set 3 from the second page, having to add the 'RecMonitorMute' entry as detailed in the first page and I can now hear my microphone input directly through my speakers.

HOWEVER, I'm still unable to record both the microphone and speaker sound at the same time. I thought recording the 'Stereo Mix' channel with the microphone coming through the speakers would work but it isn't and I don't know why. Any ideas?

Hello!
I got myself an Audio-Technica AT2020USB+ condenser microphone a few weeks ago, and I haven't really found out how I can change the gain, which I hear is important to do.
There is only one slider where the gain slider also should have been. The mic doesn't have a gain know like some other microphones have.



As you can see there is one slider. It only changes volume as far as I know.

How can I change the gain, is it needed, or can I maybe control gain using the volume slider?
If I can't change it directly through the mic or through the control panel, how can I change it? D:

Thanks in advance!

A:Can't control gain! No slider in control panel!

I have a recording studio (Sonar X3) and use several AT mics but they are not USB mics (such as the AT2035 and AT2050).

"Volume level" is the same as "gain". You can adjust the "Volume Level" or you can adjust the "gain" - both are the same thing. On mixers, amplifiers, etc, some will call the volume control "level" and others "gain".

A USB mic should have its own listing in the Sound/Recording Panel. Whatever slider that is has, such as what you show, should adjust the volume level. Many recording programs also have volume level adjustments.

The network I maintain at a school has policy restrictions which do not allow users access to the printer controls. However I would like them to have the ability to control their own print jobs and unpause printers etc. But when editing the policy I find that they get access to control panel at the same time and can do lots of possible damage.

Can I do this any way while minimising possible damage? We are running an NT4 network with some 95 and some NT workstations.

many thanks

For some reason I can not get to control panel using the start menu or from my computer I can access it via explorer or by the run menu. When using the start menu or my computer is just locks up the machine. Also when I put a cd or dvd in the autostart dialog box does not come up both happened about the same time. But I can not think of any changes I made that might have started it. Tried to fix the autostart (play) problem but everything looks correct on the drives properties.

Hello. Just recently I went into the Programs and Features to uninstall a program. A few hours later, I went to uninstall something else, but in the Programs and Features, it only showed a few programs. I tried messing with the views, but it didn't solve the problem. I know these programs are installed, for I can still use them. My friend told me to use this program that uninstalls programs, but the same thing happened. The program didn't show all my installed programs. I am really stuck and don't know what to do. I cant find any answers online, and I really need some things uninstalled. If anyone can help, I would really appreciate it. Thank you.

A:B&O control Panel is gone

Hi, Try the following. Download the Realtek HD Audio installer on the link below and save it to your Downloads folder. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp73001-73500/sp73189.exe When done, hold down the Windows key and press R Into the Run window, type devmgmt.msc and hit enter. In Device Manager, expand Sound, Video and Game Controllers.  Right click the Realtek device and select Uninstall - you should also get a prompt to remove the current driver, tick the box to allow this and then proceed with the uninstall. When complete, download and reinstall the Chipset driver on the following link. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp72501-73000/sp72862.exe When the Chipset reinstallation has completed, shutdown the notebook. Unplug the AC Adapter and then remove the battery.  Hold down the Power button for 30 seconds.  Re-insert the battery and plug in the AC Adapter. When windows has reloaded, open your Downloads folder, right click on the Realtek installer and select 'Run as Administrator' to start the installation.  When this has completed, restart the notebook and let windows fully load for a few minutes before checking. Regards, DP-K

How do i fix this???

A:Control Panel

Maybe you can do the following and solve the problem.

Start up the Windows XP Task Manager and select the Applications tab.

Now select the New Task button at the bottom of the window. A new smaller window will appear. In it simply type:

explorer.exe

explorer.exe is the Windows Program Manager (or Windows Explorer.) It manages the Windows Graphical Shell including the Start menu, taskbar, desktop, and File Manager. By restarting this process the graphical interface for Windows will reappear.

My control panel is gone, I have win xp and im looseing my mind. please help me.

A:control panel is gone

First off, have you installed or uninstalled anything since the last time you saw the control panel?

Also are you trying to access control panel from the Start menu or from My Computer? If it is the start menu, the control panel link can be hidden.


If that dosen't work there are a lot of sites that report this same problem, this one seems to have a fix:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic114010.html

It seems to involve a lot but it is one of the only ones that seem to have the problem fixed.

There are also these, but they don't seem to have confirmed fixes, although they may be a good resource.

I have had a problem with the control panel for over a month now.

Whenever I click on an icon in the control I get the following message:

'Windows cannot find 'C:\windows\system 32\rundll32.exe'
From the control paned I also cannot access Accessibility options, add hardware, automatic updates, date and time, display, game controllers, internet options, java, keyboard, mail, mouse, network setup wizard, power options, quicktime, realplayer, language options, security center, sounds and audio devices, speech, system, user accounts, windows firewall, and network wireless setup.

I have run many malware apps and still have the problem with the control panel. I corresponded with chryssi2001 at this site:

BleepingComputer.com > Security > HijackThis Logs and Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal

and under this topic: Access to control panel, cannot access any programs

I ran Hijackthis, Copmbofix, Kaspersky, and several other programs but none corrected the problem. I cannot remove any programs from my computer, cannot change the resolution, etc.

I am currently running Stopzilla, Comodo internet security, avast on-access scanner.

hello

I have a HP Compaq nx7010 running Windows XP Home Edition SP2. I was browsing the web searching for a medicine properties and I guess it was when the virus entered my computer. It has been almost 4 weeks now. The virus was a Trojan (Winavxxx or something like that), it appeared as a yellow triangle with "!" sign in the middle resembling windows alerts; alerting me of potential spyware action. Minutes later a pop-up appeared and if I click on it (which I did by mistake, was chatting and hit the enter key when it poped-up) it will re-direct me to a home page which I never used. I also got my homepage changed (hijacked) to google.

I had tried various anti-virus softwares (Norton, AVG, McAfee) and it didn't detect the Trojan nor it avoided its entrance. Now I have Avast!

I have tried many things to kill the virus and work normally. I downloaded SPYNOMORE (by that time I was aware of the Trojan and its big power), I had to re-start my computer and then all got worse.

When I started in Safe Mode, I was not able to see the Control Panel icon anymore.
I tried to uninstall the SPYNOMORE but it didn't let me do it since I was working in Safe Mode. Finally I downloaded SPYBOT SEARCH&DESTROY, and run it. It found many undesirable files and removed them. Same thing with SPYWARE TERMINATOR, it found many problems and claimed it had solved them.

3. Disabled Norton
4. Installed Spy Sweeper
5. The pop-up stopped, but Still No Control Panel

Save it to your desktop and run it. Click Next, then Install, make sure "Run fixit" is checked and click Finish.

Hello,
I am running XP on a Dell laptop. Just recently, when I try to open Control Panel, it starts to open, then all of the icons and toolbars on the desktop disapear sor a second, then everything reapears and the Control Panel has not opened. If I reboot, I can get to the Control Panel for one or two tries, the the same as above all over again. This seemed to all start when I was trying to set up a parallel-to-USB printer cable, but that could be coincidental.
I think the laptop has Service Pack 2, but I do not have it in front of me to confirm. Can anyone send me in a direction to start investigating the problem?

I experienced a problem sometime ago where I kept getting a pop up message informing me that I had a virus and saying click here. This would take me to a page that was linked to the virus. I'm led to believe that the virus was actually generating the message.

I followed a couple of tech guy threads. Eventually the repetitive message disappeared however I do appear to have lost some functionality.

1. My control panel is not available at the start menu.

2. If i double click my clock and calendar I get the following message in a pop up box;

This operation has been cancelled due to retsrcitions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator.

3. When i click certain links on the web i get the following pop up message

Spybot-S&Ds IE helper has detected an URL that is known as a malicious resource.

URL: http://ad.doubleclick.net/adi/P4542.EBYR2 plus some not visisble in box
Identified as: /DoubleClick

The box has 2 options - allow or deny. the allow option is always greyed out and cannot be accessed. When i choose deny the page often continues to open but not always. This happens nearly all the time on ebay but can even occur on the bbc.

Has anyone got some useful advice,

I am having several problems with my computer. I will start with one problem and see if we can fix it. When I click on the start button and then try to into my control panel I get an error message telling me that windows explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. Then it will ask me to send the error report and I have not been able to get into my control panel now for at least 3 days.

Ok, so whenever I try to run "control panel" it tells me that "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions on this computer. Please contact your system administrator." I restored all settings to their default, and I still can't get to the control panel. Also, I have a virus on my computer that says (Misspellings and all):"Warning! Potential Spyware Operation!Your computer is making unauthorized copies of your system and Internet files. Run full scan now to pervent any unathorised access to your files! Click here to download spyware remover...Yes No"I found a program to fix it called "Smitfraudfix" but when I try to clean the registry with it, it says that the administrator won't let me. If anyone can help me, that'd be awesome. Thanks in advance.~Moved from Windows XP~ TMacK

A:Can't Use Control Panel

Hiya,

If I'm wrong, I'm certain I will be corrected, but I thought Smitfraud was also malware,spyware.

Have you tried system restore to get back to an acceptable system condition.

Regards,

Tony.

Hi and welcome

Download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.

**Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**
--------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Close any open browsers.

2. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.
...
--------------------------------------------------------------------

Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.

When finished, it will produce a report for you.
Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log for further review.

**Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**

Trying to bring back my daughters laptop without doing a complete restage as her boyfriend is certainly causing her (and now I!) some grief.

I've added her to my Zone Alarm Security Suite (get 3 PC's ) and ran both spyware/virus which cleaned up a lot. Had to run SmitFraudFix which I found on a helpful forum and it ran to completion to bring back the control panel in safe mode. Still can't get the control panel back in regular mode though. Also still have other unexpected restrictions. Does this hijack log give any indication of why or whether there are any other problems?

Once I get this all cleaned up (if possible) I'll bring her current with Windows updates and SP's.

Thank you for your review!

A:Control Panel

Hello Rock316, you mentioned you were the administrator before, are you not the administrator now? In order to make changes to your system you will have to be the administrator.
See if this will help. Right-click on Start>Properties, on the Start Menu tab click Customize. Now on the Advanced Tab there is an option to display Control Panel, click Display as a link. Reboot.

what do you mean all included? "one-size-fits-all?" If there is an updated driver that says it's for the 7500 all in wonder then I would try deleting the device in the device manager and restart, and install that.

I purchased a new computer with Windows 7 - Home Premium. The computer went to sleep, and I would have to punch it on and wake it up. This was no problem until I put a slide show on my desk top. When my computer went to sleep and I turned it back on, the pictures were going by on the slide show but my icons and start menu did not show up. Knowing very little about settings, I finally managed to find a place in the control panel that said to restore to defaults, so I did. I turned the computer off and back on and my icons and start menu appeared, but now I cannot open my control panel. When I go to start and click on control panel, it takes it down to the task bar, and when I right click on it, some lines of text appear with various things listed in the control panel, but I cannot get them to do anything. Now I am unable to get into my control panel at all in order to try and make any changes. Thanks, Dawn

Please print out and follow the generic instructions for using "SmitfraudFix".(If you have downloaded SmitfraudFix previously, please delete that version and download it again as the tool is frequently updated!)-- If the tool fails to launch from the Desktop, please move smitfraudFix.exe to the root of the system drive (usually C:\), and run it from there.Please download MsnCleaner.zip and save to you Desktop. In addition to removing infected files, it will remove certain restrictions on your system often disabled by malware.Extract (unzip) the file to your desktop. (click here if your not sure how to do this) but DO NOT use it yet.Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8. To do this restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A boot menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".Double-click MsnCleaner.exe to run the tool.Click the "Analyze" button.A report will be created after the scan and will be saved to C:\MsnCleaner.txt.If it finds an infection, click the "Deleted" button.Reboot normally and post the contents of MsnCleaner.txt in your next reply.
