Internet Options / Internet Properties

When I opened Internet Options from IE all the options under each tab are available. When I opened Internet Options from the Control Panel or from a shortcut I created from the Control Panel, many of the options under each tab have disappeared. Example :

From Control Panel/Shortcut:

IE>Tools>Internet Options

I know the Control Panel/Shortcut worked in the past because I used it on a daily basis. Any Ideas?

It's looks exactly (well, except the icon) the same here:

I guess you have an older version of Inetcpl.cpl in the System32 directory.

Type this in Command Prompt:

dir %windir%\system32\*.cpl /a

This lists all CPL files in the system32 folder. Post the info here.

Hi there,

From my computer running Windows 10 v1511 Build 10586.218

01/16/2016  11:00 AM         2,127,360 inetcpl.cpl

Inetcpl.cpl in your system seems to have been modified (on 03/03/2016), as denoted by the Date Modified column.

Right-click Start, click Command Prompt (Admin). Type:

sfc /scanfile=c:\windows\system32\inetcpl.cpl

Post back what it says.

The date of 03/03/2016 is the first day of use on this new computer. As stated previously the Control Panel & Shortcut have worked normally until recently. Anyway...

OS install date doesn't matter. It was the last modified date of the file shown, which can be earlier than your install date.

And pls remove the space before scanfile

"sfc /scanfile"  (correct)

versus

"sfc / scanfile"  (incorrect)

Beats me.

Try:

Press WinKey + R, type control c:\windows\system32\inetcpl.cpl and press ENTER.

I guess result is the same when running:

rundll32.exe Shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL c:\windows\system32\inetcpl.cpl

or the 32-bit module

rundll32.exe Shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL c:\windows\syswow64\inetcpl.cpl

Unless someone comes up with a solution, System Restore rollback (rstrui.exe) is an option you can consider.
