control panel view

My control panel has started appearing as a menu instead of a folder with
icons. It seems to me that there is some registry setting to fix this. Can
someone give me some help here?

icons.

You're referring to the Control Panel link in the XP Start Menu ?

Thanks:

Once I unchecked "expand control panel" in the advanced start menu options,
it fixed the problem.
