    Look in the registry. Go to start>run and type regedit. Press enter.
    Navigate to
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

    Look in the right Panel for this entry:
    NoDispCPL

    If it has a value of 1 it's the culprit. Delete it.

    hamptondude PM'd me to say the registry was the answer and everything is back to normal. And to say thanks.

    Brianne,
    If I were you, I would start a new post of my own and provide as many details about what is happening as possible. When and what the error message says using exact wording.
