Couple of threads here,

Problem with Vista and Control Panel - Tech Support Forum

win 7 control panel crahes

Wonder if the persons that removed the Realtek driver are they same person, just with a different name.

also found this one,

Windows Explorer has stopped working CTMLFX32.dll - Creative Labs

that links back to the Technet post, and the final post in it the solution from th Technet thread worked.

thanks. i'll check those, too!

i already did a system restore to before the drivers were installed and control panel works again...but i already knew that.

now firefox wont open in regular mode. only in safe mode...and i even reinstalled it.
but that's not the issue i'm concerned with at the moment.

i checked the link for those other drivers and have not been able to download them, so i have not had a chance to try them.

does anyone know if they are hosted at another location?

More like it doesn't like something in your setup. I have the same Xtreme Music and have never seen the issue you are getting.

Did you try any of the suggestions on the two links I posted?

Have you fixed that it is it still ongoing? If still ongoing it could suggest that there are other things causing the problem(s).
