I have windows XP pro SP2. I am not able to view my control panel in
classic view. All I see on the left pane under see also is Windows
update, Help and Support, and other control panel options links.
Nothing else. I checked the registry for decimal entry. It is set to 1.
I try to reset it to 0 and close. I reopen and it is 1 again. Please
help.

Above the section in the left pane that has a box that says "See also", do
you also see a box just above that just says "Control Panel"? If so, then if
the Control Panel box has a arrow on its right-side pointing *down* -- click
that down arrow and then click "Switch to Category View".
