When I attempt to manage computer by right clicking on Computer and
selecting Manage the action fails with a message stating that the ...
computer management.lnk can't be found.
So I guess the link is missing.
The shortcut file (.lnk) should be in:
Under Start Menu -> Programs -> Administrative, there should be about 12
shortcuts (for the default ones, not including any that you added in
that folder). Are there 12? There should be:
Computer Management (*)
Data Sources (ODBC)
Windows Firewlal with Advanced Security
Windows Memory Diagnostic
Windows Powershell Modules
(*) The one reported missing.
I added a couple, like those below, so I can't be sure of the default
count. The ones that I [thinkd that I] added were:
User Accounts (Advanced)
For the "Computer Management" shortcut, its properties are:
Target: %windir%\system32\compmgmt.msc /s
Start in: %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%
Shortcut key: none
Run: Normal window
Comment: Manages disks and provides access to other tools to manage
local and remote computers.
You can always run compmgmt.msc to start that wizard rather than relying
on a shortcut (named "Computer Management" or whatever you like) or a
pointer to the shortcut (right-clicking on Computer and selecting
Manage). The compmgmt.msc wizard just provides links to other wizards
that are available separately: Task Scheduler, Event Viewer,
Performance, Device Management, Disk Manager, and Services. You did not
mention those other wizard links were missing.
