If you have Windows 7 Ultimate.

Go to Start / All Programs / Accessories / Run - type in "gpedit.msc" in the Run box that pops up.

Then click User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Control Panel.

Right click on Hide Specified Control Panel Items and select "Edit" or double click it, click Disabled.

Or to chose what you want to show and hide select Enabled and remove what you don't want, and leave what you do want, it doesn't have to be alphabetical.

Here is the original Control Panel:

If you have Windows XP; TweakUI can change this for you: but this is the sevenforums not XPForums so enough of that.
