Default some control panel items wont open

personalization
user accounts
services.msc wont run from ...run
system
windows update
amonst others

Vista built-in games work fine (woohoo)

Any ideas?
______________________________
these doesn't work for me
1) Launch services.msc from a run command
2) Find the SL UInotify service & stop it
3) Find the Software Licensing service & stop it
4) Restart both services, starting with Software Licensing

loading a registry back-up

cmd sfc /scannow

xp you could repair from disk,my vista not so much

I get strange problems like this too. Rebooting fixes the problem, but they'll come back once a month.
