Probably it is not setup to show in the Start menu. To change it:
Right-click on the Start button and select Properties. On the Start Menu tab
click Customize... button (for Start Menu option). Click the Advanced tab
and select 'Display as a link' or 'Display as a menu' option for Control
Panel in the 'Start menu items' section. Click OK & OK.

Another option to open up Control Panel is to click Start/Run and type
control & click OK.

Is "Settings" on the Start menu ? If so, Control Panel should show up in
the menu to right after Settings is clicked on.

i have installed a series of patches and softwares...in no
perticular order...now i have a problem with my control
panel...i don't know if it is misconfiguration or a
virus...i scanned and found none...and downloaded the
msblaster worm patch....so i try to click on any icon in
the control panel..and i get rundll32.exe is not a valid
application error....why?
if i have to do something that will replace certain
files...will this mean that the software installed won't
work any longer ( require a re-install) ???

There should be a click-able link for "classic view" in the left column of
the initial Control Panel window.
