NO Accessibility Options!

Hi all!

I hope some of you can help me. I just recently found out that I don't have
any accessibility options for StickyKeys and Stuff.

As when I press my stift key 5 times my PC bleeps and says that StickyKeys
has been activated, press Ok to trun StickyKeys on, press Canel to turn
StickyKeys Off or press Settings to change StickyKeys Options.

So I press StickyKeys and nothing comes up!

Also I tried Start -> Help and Support and search for StickyKeys and clicked
on Change StickyKeys Settings link and it had a link to Accessibility Options
and a Help dialog cam saysing this software appears to not be installed, and
gives me three or four options, but I can't do those options it provides as I
haven't got a Windows Installation Disc.

Is there a special download I can get from somewhere, or does anyone know
how I can get accesssibility options back.

Thanx for reading and any support provided.

OS: XP Home Edition - SP2

Hi all!

You don't have to worry now as I have sused it!

The way how I sused it was using the Help and Support tool And I right
clicked on the link that said software not installed and found out it was
linking to a file in C:\WINDOWS\System32\ and it was called access.cpl so I
searched for it in my System32 folder and I couldn't find it.

So I went to Start -> Search -> All Files and Folders and searched for
access.cpl and it appeared and it was found in
C:\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386\ and in that folder I found that it had a
copyu of what C:\WINDOWS\System32\ had so I copied access.cpl to
C:\WINDOWS\system32 and i did the short cut (hitting shift 5 times) and then
clicking settings and Apresto! the Accessibilities Options appeared!

I'm guessing that when ever you install a servicepack it'll copy all the
contents of the systems root folder or something.
