Can't access some items in the control panel

Everytime I click on any item in the control panel the application freezes. What should I do?
I have admin rights
I am running Panda virus
I can still access everything but I have to go the long way round.

Tell more.

What's changed since it worked?

If it worked before a registry cleaner, tell about that.

Also, admin must obey rights and permissions too. Are you sure you have read the books on that? (Hint: no God mode.)

If it worked yesterday, why not System Restore to yesterday?

If it never worked, tell that too.
