For some reason several days ago I noticed an annoying problem with my taskbar control panel items. When right click them and try to open "Network and Sharing" or the "Action Center" nothing happens. There is a brief moment when it uses processor time but nothing ever opens. I AM able to open these thing using Explorer and clicking them in the control panel.

I had an issue the other day that was fixed by rolling back and uninstalling the latest round of Windows Updates (4/13/10). This was an issue that was preventing me from connecting from my wireless network. I was hoping that the above mentioned issue would also be solved by this (they happened around the same time) but this wasn't the case.

Any ideas?

System Restore??

Follow the below instructions Carefully:
1. Download HiJackThis from the link in my signature
2. Run a Scan.
3. Save a Logfile(On your Desktop)
4. DO NOT FIX ANYTHING BY YOURSELF.
(Fixing Anything Might cause Unwanted System Instability,BSOD's and Even Render your System Unusable)
5.Copy and Paste all the contents
6. Paste them in the reply Window

Yes I used System Restore (foolishly) to do this "uninstall."

I will run a Hijack This and post log results.

Thanks for the reply!

The log seems clean.
But as a precaution try running a full scan with SAS and MalwareBytes.
(Download link in my sign.)

Try Running "sfc /scannow" from an elevated command prompt and "chkdsk /r".
Let us know your real experience!

I ran the /sfc as admin the other day and it returned no errors. I will run a chkdsk when I get home.

Something that caught my eye is the several things in the HiJack This log that were "file missing." One of these was Windows Media Player. I hardly ever use the thing but I did test and try to open it and it won't open from the "pinned to tasbar" icon or the start menu. I didn't have the time to track down the .exe and try open it there but this definitely tells me something is amiss. Perhaps the chkdsk will turn something up.

So I eventually reinstalled my OS, typically the last thing I'd ever do. It now seems that the newest Java update caused all my problems! ARGH!

Sorry to ask,
but how did the latest Java Update caused the indefinite and unknown problem?

I'm not a programmer nor do I pretend to be so I can't answer that. I was so frustrated I didn't debug any of my crash dumps either. All I know is that the ONLY thing that changed between working and not working was that update.
