They're in C:\Windows\System32. Are you having some kind of problem with a control panel program?

Try running this

Please download SUPERAntiSpyware Home Edition (free version) – Home User

  1. Install it and double-click the icon on your desktop to run it.
  2. It will ask if you want to update the program definitions, click Yes.
  3. Under Configuration and Preferences, click the Preferences button.
  4. Click the Scanning Control tab.
  5. Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked:

    • Close browsers before scanning
    • Scan for tracking cookies
    • Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
    • Please leave the others unchecked.
    • Click the Close button to leave the control center screen
    .
  6. On the main screen, under Scan for Harmful Software click Scan your computer.
  7. On the left check C:\Fixed Drive.
  8. On the right, under Complete Scan, choose Perform Complete Scan.
  9. Click Next to start the scan. Please be patient while it scans your computer.
  10. After the scan is complete a summary box will appear. Click OK.
  11. Make sure everything in the white box has a check next to it, then click Next.

Focusing on cpl files is unlikely to solve any problems. Post an HijackThis log for further help removing malware.
