Windows 7: browsing control panel....and it crashed.

This may sound strange - humor me. Change your theme to Windows Classic, boot, try browsing Control Panel again. This is a test, not a proposed fix.

DUI? Driver Under the Influence??? That'll make you crash, all right. This should be a first, a peripheral going to rehab ...

DirectUI - little documentation that I can find. I suspect a connection to Aero but the OP is out.

I am looking into some of the obscure issues, ignoring peripheral input in the threads and really trying to dissect the cause. This is not my forte. I am on a steep learning curve. Got any dope on DirectUI?

Ok. I just tried Windows Basic and Windows Classic.

Both got that problem as well , the DUI70.dll

OK. I am finding little data on the DUI70.dll. I thought I had found a connection to Aero. I cannot unreg it on my machine, suspect the same with you. I find two different reports of the same problem that self-corrected, but I do not believe in "self-corrections".

Have we booted in safe mode and opened Control Panel?

Also, can you cascade Control Panel on your Start Menu, launch each CPL and check if an individual CPL is causing crash?

Here are the findings :

Safe mode and navigating control panel -> No problem.

Control panel in cascading menu and open each CPL -> No problem.

Start, Run, Cmd

type CD\
Cd \windows\system32
dir *.cpl >> c:\cpl.txt

post the contents of the file

Several web posts indiucate an individual cpl is may be corrupt, with popular candidates.
