Scroll down until you see Desktop Windows Manager Sessions Manager select it in click on the Stop text and let it stop after that click on Start text and see if that works. Your screen may blink when you do this.

You could try to update your graphic card drivers.
Also tried refreshing your WEI Windows Experience Index - Update or Refresh Score

With missing options in your visual effects I would recommend doing a Repair Install it will not harm any data or programs you have installed Repair Install
