I can't access my start button (lost with desktop and taskbar) and therefore can't access control panel.

I've tried everything to restore my desktop, but nothing works (can't even get 'explorer.exe' to run) so I thought I'd try to find the problem in control panel (perhaps something that I have on my system that should be deleted).

How do I get into control panel?

try this, either u press Win+R (if it does work) and type control panel, or at task manager, File - New Run, type control panel and press enter
