Cannot open Control Center in Mandrake 9.2


I'm a bit of a noob with Linux still, even if I use unix on a daily basis at work.
I'm having issues with a very basic function: I cannot load the Control Center.

First of all, it is not under my KDE Menu List.
Still, I can ADD a link to the Menu Bar by right-clicking on the menu bar, etc etc. Once the Control Center button is placed (under a screwdriver pic) I go to click on it...and nothing happens!

Has anyone seen this problem?
Is there a terminal command to launch the control center?

I'm thinking of reinstalling MD 9.2 again, just because I was able to access it BEFORE. For some reason I can't now. How strange.

That did it. Now I just have to figure out:
1. Why the button don't work
2. Why my screen is a little blurry (Sun monitor)
3. Why it's taking me so long to set-up a webserver.

I'm on my way. Thanks.
