Ok open the task manager and then click on the processes tab at the top.
Then look for explorer.exe and click on it then click on end task.
Once done the desktop should dissapear.
Click on file and then new task and type in explorer.exe then click on ok.

Customer reply replied 7 years ago
same response can not open programs and features from control panel
Ok what are you trying to do from programs and features exactly?
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 7 years ago
uninstall programs that i dont use
Ok please try using this free program as a work around: Click Here (Use the green download button under revo uninstaller.) It will actually uninstall the programs and remove files that are left over from those programs that programs and features will normally leave. Unfortunately as far as programs and features goes I am out of ideas so I will opt out and open this to all experts I just thought I would give you a work around with that uninstaller just in case no one else thinks of anything either.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
