I am using XP home edition, SP3.

In Category View in the control panel, under "Other Control Panel Options" there are no icons for Java, Bluetooth Local COM, BDE administrator and possibly some others. They are available only under Classic View. This has to be an error, because on another XP home SP3 system, these options are available under both "other control panel options" and in classic view.

I have also noticed that when I click on "other control panel options" a message will flash very quickly in the window ("These Control Panel options are not available. The content of the Control Panel category has been made unavailbe by your system admininistrator." - I could not catch the rest). The message is quickly replaced by "Pick a Control Panel icon" and three icons (for Norton Security Center, Program Updates, and Software Explorers).

I checked in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\don't load, but there is nothing related to java nor bluetooth.

Thanks in advance!

Personally I don't like Category view because I can never find anything. Do the icons show up as normal in Classic view?

Hi Neil,

Yes, they are visible in Classic view.

In Category View in the control panel, under "Other Control Panel Options" there are no icons for Java, Bluetooth Local COM, BDE administrator and possibly some others. They are available only under Classic View.
