No Display Properties

Asus mother board P5 ld2.vm r2
January 17, 2010 at 17:30:43
Specs: Windows XP sp3
I've searched and read every post I could find on this problem and none of the fixes work for me. desk.cpl won't open from cointrol panel,desktop properties,run box,or directly clicking on desk.cpl in the system 32 folder. Tried reg files from kelly's corner. Looked at the noshow values in the current user/software/microsoft/windows/policies/whatever the values are all 0's. I reinstalled windows and it worked for awhile then went right back. Any Ideas.

XPee, Go to the link below, click on "Security" (left side), click on "Disable/Enable Display Properties" then download and run the "displayapplet.vbs" file. It's worth a try.

I can't seem to download the displayapplet.vbs file. When I click on the link a bunch of text loads right there in the window. I can't tell anything from what I read. I could give you a screenshot but I'm not sure if that would do any good.

Xpee, Use IE and right click the displayapplet.vbs file and choose Save target as, then save it to your hard drive and double click it to run it.

I have the exact problem and followed your instructions. A box popped up stating Internet Explorer options are now disabled. So I double clicked the program again and it came up "is now enabled". Tried both ways. Unfortunately, neither solved my inability to open "internet options" and I either get nothing or a message that it won't open due to restrictions and contact the administrator. I am admstr and was logged in as such.

Any other solutions?

justmesquitem Do you have Spybot S&D and/or SUPERAntiSpyware installed? Spybot has an option (under IE Tweaks) and SUPERAntiSpyware has an option under the Repair tab to not allow access to Internet Options which you must disable.

Let me give some history--HP Pavillion laptop, WinXP, have Firefox and IE7 (downloaded IE 8, uninstalled (SLOW) and reinstalled IE 7) and that is when my problems began. So spybot was installed from the beginning and never affected start up and shut down processes like now (snail's pace).

Now, about a week or so ago, I discovered that I could no longer access the "Internet Options" from the tools tab. I cannot change those options using any other method in the program. It also now appears I cannot get spybot to do the trick for me either.

Any other suggestions for startup/shutdown issues along with inability to access the internet options tab?

Forgot to state I did take the action in your first response to me without success.
