    I 'upgraded' to Windows 10 yesterday and initially found the control panel but can no longer find it. I very badly want to change my wallpaper and screen saver.
    Where is it?

    :)

    control panel

    Is it a "desktop" application or a Window Store app?

    Find it in the Start menu and right click on the tile/icon. Some include an Uninstall Option.

    I think you may find that in your Startup items:

    Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc to open Task Manager

    Click on the Startup Tab

    See if WinZip Driver Updater is listed there

    If it is, select it and click 'Disable'

    Close Task Manager

    Click your Start Button, type msconfig and hit Enter

    When the System Configuration dialog opens, click on the Services Tab

    Check the box marked 'Hide Microsoft Services'

    In the remaining list see if WinZip Driver Updater is listed, uncheck it you find it

    Click Apply and OK

    Restart your System and this annoyance will be gone . . .
