Windows 7: Old Control Panel Available?

Old Control Panel Available?

Did a clean install and got almost everything re-installed last night, but one program puts an icon on the Windows Control Panel. Win 7 is giving me the new Control Panel category view and I can't find anything. In 7100 RC I am almost certain I had the old traditional Windows Control Panel. Can I get that in Win 7 RTM and if so how? Seems like my rusty memory is telling me there was a way to chose which display you wanted in Vista????
