    I performed all of the actions that you suggested in your reply (Amit (Kumar))and I still cannot get my control panel to work. Again, I have windows 10 and checked and I have all upgrades.

    When I open control panel it comes up very quickly but I cannot get any of the icons to respond then it abruptly shuts off after 10-2- seconds.

    I you cannot help me fix this, can you please tell me how to access backup and restore so that I can go back to Windows 7, if possible.

    Thank you
