    Control Panel, Personalize and System Properties does not open

    It is my newly installed Windows Vista Home Premium. I dint noticed any error or issue during the installation but after completing the same when I tried opening Control Panel, it just wont open. There is no error, no freez, nothing. I tried opening some another programs as well and found few more that wont open. Here is the list:
    • Control Panel
    • Personalize
    • System Properties


    Can someone please let me know what could be the problem and help me to fix them as well? Thanks in advance.

    That’s really weird behavior of the system but I don’t think it is Vista’s problem. Probably could be Hardware issue. As you said it is just installed, you wont be having any important data on the system right ? So will suggest you to try re-installing it again once. If there is something related to the OS, it will get fixed Or you will need to work with your hardware.

    In such situation you’ll need to search for any good Memory Diagnostic Tool and run the test. Also open up the system and ensure that all cables, chips, etc are fitted properly. If still get the same problem, simply call a technician and let him fix it.

    I have same exact problem.. both personalization and system menus only pop up for a fraction of a second..

    I have an Acer Aspire 8920 with vista ultimate..
