My mother was the one who notified me of this problem. There seems to be no User Control panel.

Whenever I go into the User Control panel, I get nothing but a blank screen. Click here for an image.

Now, my mom told me this has been going on for roughly three months. I have no idea why this would be happening, or what I would need to do to fix it. Any help is greatly appreciated.

So all I'll need to do is grab the information you mentioned from there, post it here, and we can work off that? I'll get it done in a minute.

Edit: This should be all you were asking for.

System Model: HP Pavilion 061 DM185A-ABA A335W 0n31211RE101ECHO 10
Windows Version: Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 (build 2600)

I don't know if that's all you're looking for or not. I'll keep that page open.
