Use this link to microsoft on how to do it.
Be sure to use the "If your system can start". And follow the instructions closely.
Hope this helps.

How to Troubleshoot Control Panel Issues in Windows
CONTROL PANEL ACCESS PROBLEMS
These don't cover your exact problem of renaming the folder, but it has a lot of stuff you can do yourself to see if you can't correct the problem. Still working on a solution, but I don't use XP so what I try to do on my PC with ME doesn't always work for XP.
Possibly you either need to reinstall XP or see if you can find "Folder" in the registry that refers to Control Panel.
Exactly which do you need to rename : The Control Panel icon in the Startup menu, the folder that appears in the "My Computer" listing in Explorer, one on your desktop??? Hopefully it is just a shortcut icon, but I don't think so if it was renamed by a virus.
Maybe someone will come up with a good solution while I work on this.

Are you getting any error messages? (Micro$oft Support)
Possibly this is related :
Don't know if this will work for you either :
System File Checker (it may correct your problem.)
Type SFC /SCANNOW
SFC may ask for you to insert the Windows CD
I still think you have malware problems. You might want to go to the Malware Removal section of this forum and follow the instructions there.
