Windows 7: Broken "Administrative Tools" link in Control Panel

Broken "Administrative Tools" link in Control Panel

Admin Tools shortcut is broken in Control Panel.
Also Computer>Right Click Context>"Manage" does not work

I can open 'run commands' such as: COMPMGMT.MSC, SERVICES.MSC & DISKMGMT.MSC from the start button>search window but I can not access the general AdminTools page from Control Panel.

Tried start>properties>start menu>customize> "use default settings" but that didnt do squat.

Plz Help. Tnx

Hello Brian,

These tutorials may be able to help with restoring the Administrative Tools folder, and fix Manage.

Administrative Tools - Restore Shortcuts

and

Manage - Fix "File does not have a program associated"

Hope this helps,
Shawn
