I have an emachines E625 laptop which came with home basic.
I seem to have a lot of items in the control panel which do nothing at all. No virus as machine is not used on internet.
They don't even open. Is this normal? I tried re-installing from CD but no different. The items which do nothing when clicked are:

Administrative tools
Backup and restore
Device Manager
Network and sharing
Performance information & tools
Programs and features
User accounts
Windows update

Is this because there is an overall control [ admin or something ] or because it's a cheap version or is there a problem - if so what can I do about it?
