  1. Hi Guys,

    Please can anyone help? When I double click on "administrative tools" absolutely nothing happens not even an error message? I am worried that my machine has been comprimised maybe by a virus? Or has something disabled it in the registry?

    Thanks for any suggestions in advance

    Do you have Tweak ui or similar type program on your machine ?
    If so check its settings for hiding these items .
