Restore - Replace Missing Shortcuts under System Tools

Restore - Replace Missing Shortcuts under System Tools:

If we open System Tools present under the All Programs>Accessories>System Tools we find there are several system tools like - Backup, Character Map, Disk Cleanup, Disk Defragmenter - Files and Setting Transfer Wizard,  Security Center, System Information, Schedule tasks, System Restore & Activate Windows.

The problem:-The above shortcuts are missing under the system tools.

Resolution:-To recreate those missing shortcuts do the following:-

Right click on desktop>New>Shortcut.
In the blank box type (or paste) the following :-

%SystemRoot%\system32\ntbackup.exe then click Next and give a name to the shortcut-Backup and click Finish.

Like wise create shortcuts for the following:-

Character Map: - %SystemRoot%\system32\charmap.exe
Disk Cleanup: - %SystemRoot%\system32\cleanmgr.exe
Disk Defragmenter: - %SystemRoot%\system32\dfrg.msc
Files and Setting Transfer Wizard: - %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\usmt\migwiz.exe
Security Center: - %SystemRoot%\system32\wscui.cpl
System Information: - C:\PROGRAM FILES\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\MSInfo\msinfo32.exe
Scheduled Tasks: - %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe ::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}\::{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}\::{D6277990-4C6A-11CF-8D87-00AA0060F5BF}
System Restore: - %SystemRoot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
Activate Windows: - %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\oobe\msoobe.exe /A

Now open Windows Explorer>Expand My Computer>Expand 'C' Drive>Documents and settings>Local User Name>Start Menu>Programs>Accessories>Click on System Tools.

Now copy and paste the above created shortcuts in the System Tools folder.

You may need to change the properties for the Security Center Icon.

If you need to totally Reinstall the programs.

Well in that case, I'd say you can get them back by going to your control panel

Start Menu-> Control Panel

then open up "Add or Remove Programs"

Click on "Add/Remove Windows Components" from the left buttons.

Then untick and retick the "Accessories and Utilities" check box and click next

Then it's a matter of follow the on screen instructions. You might need your windows CD on hand in case the computer requests it it.
