  1. Control panel wont open


    I am having trouble accessing the control panel, when i click on it, it opens in the task bar but does't appear on screen. I have tried running administrator but it is still the same problem although when i opened control panel is safe mode it successfully opened and i found out about this problem a while after so i dont know for sure which app could have caused the problem. I would really appreciate it if someone offers me a successful solution for this.

    :)
