    missing items at control panel

    Hello,

    I am running Vista Ultimate SP1.
    Today I had a look at the control panel to uninstall some software. Unfortunately the control panel didnīt display any items. It was just gray shaded.

    What I tried to solve the problem:
    1. restart PC -> same result
    2. system restore 3 days: most of the items are back , BUT 3 are missing.
    text to speech, index options, offline folders

    Could anybody explain to me how to restore or to reinstall or to create new items?

    I would imagine that all items were there two weeks ago and I have no idea what I did wrong.

    Thanks

    P.S. I am admin and I there is no virus or spyware on the machine.

    Hi Alcone and welcome to Vista Forums

    It is possible that some of the items have been set as "hidden", so have a look at the following Tutorial to see if it helps you to restore them: Control Panel - Hide Icon

    thanks for replay.
    No, it is set as "not configured."
