tried Tweaki UI and it doesn't restore the applets. I know there is a registry setting that if reset or modified will unhide these applets but I can't remember where or what they are.

Found this:
Click Start, Run and enter REGEDIT

Go to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\don't load

Look in the right pane and you'll see the Control Panel Icons that have been disabled. You can either right click on the "don't load" subkey and select Delete to restore all disabled icons, or you can right click on each of the items in the right pane and select Delete to selectively restore them.
