    Hi,
    I didn't know about that, anyway i really have no clue of how to restore them but i would think of windows restoration tool
    Start menu + All programs + Accessories + System tools + system restore

    I know its not the best but nothing to do, that windows, if it were for linux i would have a command that would fix only the tool.

    Cheers
    Robin

    Which part of the Administrative Tools is missing? Windows Update shouldn't affect them.

    Is the icon missing from the Administrative Tools program group or is it really the entire computer management function that is gone?

    What happens when you right-click My Computer and select "Manage"?

    Are you taking this path:

    Control Panel> Administrative Tools ?? That should give you choice of:
    Component Services
    Computer Management
    Data Sources
    Event Viewer Performance
    Services
