Ok Sue. I created a REG file that is attached at the bottom that will restore the default Administrative Tools and Common Administratrive Tools DWORD registry entries for your specific user account name. If you like download and merge the REG file, then restart the computer to see if that may fix this for you. :)

(WARNING - no one else use this REG file since it's specific for Sue only. It will not work for you.)
