Administrative Tools Icon On Desktop

The administrative Tools folder is in fact a sub-folder of the Documents and 'Settings\AllUsers\Start Menu\Programs' folder, but dragging it or moving it around your computer might cause it to stop functioning. To add the Administrative Tools icon to the desktop, follow these steps:

 1. Click on the Start button and select Run
 2. Type in 'regedit' and press OK
 3. Look for this string:
 4. In the right pane, right-click and select 'New->Key'
 5. Name the key '{D20EA4E1-3957-11d2-A40B-0C5020524153}'
 6. Close the Registry editor

There is no need to reboot your computer. Just wait a few seconds and the icon will appear.
