    Hi guys. I have a strange problem. I've seen lots of people complaining about the Internet Options Control Panel icon vanishing, but in my case I still have it, but the label has vanished (image attached).

    The internet options item is still available in Internet Explorer, and in both cases the options dialog appears as normal. I have IE7 but a few weeks ago I installed and then uninstalled IE8. I wonder if that could be the culprit (I hadn't noticed the Control Panel problem before today.)

    I checked the registry entry at:


    and couldn't see anything obviously wrong. The "LocalizedString" entry seems a likely candidate for giving the control panel title.

    I don't believe I have a malware problem. I keep my system pretty well protected and clean.

    Any ideas?
