Press CTRL+SHIFT+ESC to start taskmanager.
Search for explore.exe.
If it isn't there, click on File / New Task and type in explore.exe

Please send a reply, if you solved the problem !!!

I would run an anti-virus and Malewarebyte antimaleware
They have a Free version

For your Taskbar try Kelly's corner.
Numbers - 164 - 195 - 298

I don't have anything for the control panel. Kelly's corner had
some listings that required a registry fix.

For your Control Panel problem do a search for SDFix.exe
This is old information I have saved and I believe it's supposed
to be run in Safe Mode.
