Control Panel / Programs And Features / Power Options / System Do Not Open

Sep 17, 2015

I installed an application "Clone File Checker" and uninstalled that using "iObit Uninstaller" with Power Unistall" option. After that, i am not able to open Control Panel, Programs & Features, Power Options and System from the Start Menu. Clicking on each of these gives an error in the enclosed screenshots, but all of them display the error message "This file does not have an program associated with it to perform this action. Please install a program, or if one is already installed, create an association in the Defaults Program Control Panel". Only the file names are different. When I try to set the Default Applications, I do get a similar error message.

Moreover, clicking on the File Explorer from the Start Menu opens the Explorer screen, but when I pin to the Taskbar and subsequently attempt to open tit from Task Bar, I get an error message.

Cannot Open Control Panel Or System

Oct 16, 2015

I cannot open Control Panel or the System programs. This is the pop up message I keep getting; "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel," I normally would select these programs by right-clicking on the Start windows logo bottom left hand corner and carry on. restoring windows to normal again

Some Control Panel Options Are Not Indexed

Sep 7, 2015

I have a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro on my desktop with all updates installed. I like to use Cortana to quickly get to settings and apps, but I noticed for some reason I can't find every system setting via Cortana. For example, searching for "updates" on my wife's laptop brings up "Check for updates" and takes her to Windows Update, but when I search for "updates" on my desktop it only finds web results. Even doing a search for "updates" from within the system settings window doesn't find the setting.

After some searching I believe I've found the problem. The indexing for settings search appears to be in this folder:

C:Users{user}AppDataLocalPackageswindows.immersivecontrolpanel_cw5n1h2txyewyLocalStateIndexe dSettingsen-US. When I search for "updates" in this folder on my desktop there are no results, but on my wife's laptop there is a result for "Check for updates." It appears my index is missing several features for some reason. How can I fix this? Does rebuilding the index from the advanced Indexing Options also rebuild the system settings index or is there a separate process for this?

Can't Open File Explorer Or Control Panel

Dec 28, 2015

About a week ago Windows 10 started working in an abnormal manner on my PC: I wasn't able to open File Explorer or Control Panel, whether from the start menu or from basically any application that calls for those (file explorer or control panel).

I tried running command prompt (admin) sfc /scannow, DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth commands several times but that doesn't fix the problem at all. As a last resort I downloaded a brand new Windows 10 ISO file from the Microsoft site and performed a clean installation formatting my HDD. Things were OK the first minutes, but then the problem starts again with the each new installation of Windows. I don't know what is causing File Explorer and control panel to crash, maybe its a faulty driver or windows update itself. I have installed Windows 10 from that ISO file several times and every time after a few minutes of me doing nothing with the computer, it fails again.

The first driver I update to be able to use my monitor is the nVidia driver (361.43).

Cannot Open File Explorer - Control Panel

Sep 26, 2015

Weird issue with Acer CB280HK 4k Monitor

So, I was lucky enough to get a new monitor and new pc the other day; a dell xps 8700, and for purposes of this discussion, the video card set up is a intel hd graphics 4600 board, and a Nvidia GTX745, with 4 gigs of ram. The monitor is a 4k capable monitor, and to get the full res, its plugged in via a display port connector, into the intel board, since the nvidia card does NOT have a display port connector, only hdmi, which would limit the res to 1920x1080.

Problem is, ever since connecting it, for some crazy reason, I can NOT get my control panel to open, my file explorer to open, or adjust some of my desktop properties...EVERYTHING else works great, but those things no longer work..

Weird thing is, if I downres to 1920x1080, I can get the file explorer to work, but thats about it..

I ended up downloading MulitCommander Pro, which is an alternative file manager, and it works just fine. I am on windows version 10547, Home version..

All these things worked perfectly with my old monitor, connected via hdmi@1920x1080, so I dont think anything serious is wrong, but I cant figure out why these built in windows core items wont open up when the res is at 3840X2160.

Nvidia Control Panel Won't Open For Some Reason

Jul 29, 2015

Just got windows 10 and my second monitor isn't being detected when it clearly is plugged in. I'm assuming this is a problem with my drivers for my graphics card, but when I tried to open the GeForce experience it said that it (the GeForce experience) failed to install/ I tried downloading the drivers without the GeForce experience but that also said it failed to install. also the Nvidia control panel won't open for some reason.

BSOD :: Can't Open Control Panel Or File Explorer

Dec 15, 2015

New Skylake based build with Windows 10 Pro on a 250GB Samsung SSD. After initial startup I decided to format the drive to repartition it and did a clean install of Win10. Shortly after, the wireless connection to the router kept failing every few minutes and I would have to repair it. Then suddenly for no reason I could find I couldn't open the control panel. Clicking the taskbar icon would cause the screen to blink and all the taskbar icons would disappear and reappear. Decided to do a reset and that seemed to work until suddenly, again without warning or reason, I couldn't open the File Explorer and it did the same thing the Control Panel did and couldn't find a way to repair it.

Booted up from the Win10 install USB device and did another clean install of Win10. Got all of my programs reinstalled and running and all was well so I quickly did a system and partition backup with Todo. The wireless connection was working but suddenly I once again couldn't open the control panel. I had installed all Windows updates after doing the backups including the new version update but I don't know if there was anything in there that might have triggered the control panel issue. I booted up with the Todo emergency boot disc and did a partition restore. Everything is once again functional and I'm delaying running any Windows updates. Ran NOD32 virus scans and SFC /SCANNOW and neither found any problems or issues.

I'm just cruising along at the moment waiting for another incidence to occur. Is it possible I have a flaky SSD? Windows 10 seems to have a few issues with SSDs such as showing two instances of the same drive in File Explorer.

Cannot Connect To Internet Anymore / Nvidia Control Panel Refuses To Open

Aug 3, 2015

I upgraded from Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium. I cannot connect to the internet anymore, Nvidia Control Panel refuses to open, Steam will not open, my monitor's max refresh rate is capped at 64 Herz, and that is just the larger issues I'm facing.

If I cannot fix all of the above problems then I'll have to revert back to Windows 7, which I really do not want to do. Here's my PC build:

OS: Windows 10 64-bit
MOBO: ASRock Z97 Extreme3
CPU: i5-4690k
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Superclocked ACX 2.0
RAM: Corsair Vengeance Blue 8GB 1600 MHz
PSU: Thermaltake TR2 600W
HDD: Hitachi 1TB 7200 RPM
Monitor: ASUS VG278HE 144 Hz 1ms

I'm a bit of a frame rate nut so having the system setup I have and not being able to enjoy it completely drives me mad. I can't play games knowing my frame rate is capped at 64. That, and if I don't have internet then I won't be able to update any of my games or buy new ones and register them. Should I revert back to Windows 7 and wait for some of these issues to be fixed by Microsoft?

How To Get To Old Control Panel

Aug 12, 2015

Now that I've got Win10,, I was looking around and clicking on stuff to see what was under the hood, I found that you can get to the Old Control Panel like in Win 7, problem is I don't remember how I got there. I don't particularly care for the new Settings menu in 10 but I guess if there is't enough complaints about it, I guess were stuck with it. I do like 10, there are some issues but just like with new stuff, you get bugs.

No Sound - No Control Panel

Aug 2, 2015

Installed Win10 and have the following problems.

1) I have no sound; Sound icon on task bars says "No audio Output Device Installed." When I run troubleshooter, it says Troubleshooting couldn't detect the problem.

2) Control Panel: When I click on control panel it opens, however, it shuts down in 15 seconds.

I'm not a techno person. Dummy me didn't back up before I installed and now I can kick myself.
