Default Administrative tools...

This computer is a household computer, so I am not sure if someone has messed with it or not... Anyway, I went into Control Panel and tried accessing my Administrator tools, but when I open the folder there is absolutely nothing in it, I have tried showing hiddens files and folders, but still nothing? Any ideas of what I can do? Thanks, Jeremiah...

Yes there are other users but their settings are set to limited access and they don't know anything about computers besides email and IM's... And I am trying to access my Disk Management.

All the files in Administrative tools are just shortcut to the real files in c:\windows\system32

You can start the following tools by going to run and typing:

For computer managment: compmgmt.msc
For local security policy: secpol.msc
For services: services.msc
System configuration: msconfig.exe
Event Viewer: eventvwr.msc
Device Manager: devmgmt.msc
Data source (ODBC): odbcad32.exe
