Control Panel - Default View

Windows 7.
Control Panel.

I have lost my default view of the Control Panel. The one that comes with Vista and Windows 7.

Begins with Adjust your computers settings - then the first one is System and Security.

Now all I have is the Classic View.

I just installed Norton Antivirus 2010 and I don't have a clue if that software did this.

Anyway, how to I get my default or standard view of the Control Panel back?

There is no place to click on the 'classic view' to change anything.

Norton 2010 would not (or least should not) have changed it. Mine never has.

If Im understanding you correctly, you should be able to open control panel, and in top right corner expand the view and choose category.

Hello,

What you do is in Control Panel, at the top-right, select Category for the view.

Hope this helps,

Control Panel View
I really hate the interface on Windows7. Dropping the old Explorer view where you could see all the folders was a really bad idea. I'm sure there's nothing I can do about that, but is there an option for a classic view of Control Panel? Previously, when you clicked on Control Panel, it opened a...
