"Unable to register the Control Panel"

By bnc ·
Upon startup of a Windows 95 PC, I get prompted this message, "Unable to register the Control Panel". Everything still seems to work OK but its just bothersome to see this message everytime I startup the PC.

"Unable to register the Control Panel"

The probable cause is a corrupted .CPL file, or a file with the .CPL extension that is not actually a Control Panel applet. Use the command Find Files or Folders from the Start menu to find all the files with the extension .CPL that are in or below the Windows 95 directory. Right-click on each file and select "Open with Control Panel." If the item opens successfully, close it and go on to the next. Chances are good you'll find one that fails to load--that's your culprit. Change the file's extension or move it to another directory and your problem should go away.

If you are still tackling this problem, perhaps you should consider calling your local super-hero.
