Exclamation Control Panel

First of all, im running XP Pro SP2. What i did was installed Brico Pack Vista Inspirant and then soem additional Vista Visual Styles and everythnig was going great until i went to uninstall a program and tried to go to the Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel and it wouldn't open, just make the error beep and nothing would happen. Also these 3 things just appeared in the Control Panel as well. And they don't open anything as well. And i even have one more wierd thing, all of a sudden my wireless status indicator thing for windows (The wireless manager build into windows) has a wierd icon. Its labeled wierd on my screencap. I have one more thing, in my System Preferances, i don't have all of the tabs at the top, I have included another screencap.

Screencaps:

Control Panel

System Preferances

I think your only solution will be to do a repair install.
