The reason I ask is because if I click on "Administrative Tools" in the Control Panel, I get an error message that states that the "Location is Not Available".
The "location" that is spelled out in the error message specifies a subfolder that does not exist on my system, as follows:
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\STUFF\Administrative Tools.
So I searched the registry for all references to STUFF, and deleted the reference (there were 3 of them) from the registry keys, rebooted, and . . .
Everything works . . .
"Administrative Tools" are now accessible via the Control Panel, Start Menu and All Programs.
It should be noted that "STUFF" was a horribly gone wrong attempt to correct this problem using a suggestion from a blog.
Wish I had found this Forum first! It would have saved me a lot of grief.
