CONTROL PANEL PROBLEM - WIN2000 AND XP
For reasons that only Microsoft can explain, recent Windows updates have changed the functionality of some items in the Control Panel applet. If you select "USER ACCOUNTS" or "ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS" Control Panel may not respond or will open Notepad with an error message instead. This is because Microsoft has decided to replace the original Control Panel programs with actual HTA SCRIPTING! Since HTA has been stopped, this too will also be stopped because the MSHTA.EXE program which HTAStop stops is not available.
The solution to this problem is to run HTAStop and PERMIT HTA long enough to do what you need to do, then turn it back off again so as to protect your security. Microsoft is using MSHTA for these Control Panel functions now, and HTAStop has blocked MSHTA.EXE from running.
