Try expanding a new copy of appwiz.cpl if other control panel applets are
working correctly. Start/run msconfig, click on "expand file" (general tab)
File to expand: appwiz.cpl
Where X is whatever letter is assigned your CD drive (you need your WinXP CD
for this), change it accordingly. If your system was preinstalled, you may
find this instead on the hard drive under C:\Windows\I386 or simply C:\I386.
If so, change the "from" line accordingly. This assumes a default
installation to C:\Windows. If your installation is in a different folder,
such as C:\Winnt, change the "To" path accordingly. Reboot when finished.
