Windows – What do I do when nothing happens when I open the system properties in Windows 7

propertieswindows 7

I recently reinstall windows 7 but found out that I cannot open the Windows 7 'system properties'.

Every time I click on "System", nothing happens. I've also tried clicking both "My Computer>Properties" and "Control Panel>System"

However, I can open the XP-style 'System Properties' when I run control sysdm.cpl:

How can I fix this?

This can be caused by Malware, I would first scan the system.

1.) On a PC that is Not infected, Make a boot AV disc then boot from the disc on the Infected PC and scan the hard drive, remove any infections it finds, I prefer the Kaspersky disc myself. The New 2010 Kaspersky disc can update the AV dat files if you are connected to the internet at the time of scan and is suggested to update before the scan.

2.) Then: Install free MBAM, run the program and go to the Update tab and update it, then go to the Scanner Tab and do a quick scan, select and remove anything it finds.
