Welcome aboard

What happens if you click the taskbar icon of control panel ? Any maximization or minimization action ?

Can you access control panel if you are in safe mode ?

Rin SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker, see if it can solve the issue or not.

Post back with results .

It only can be seen like this, it doesnt show up at desktop.

And i had ran the sfc/scannow, it said there nothing wrong with anything.

Do two more things ?

Have a System Restore to an earlier time that the problem is started occurring; and download, install and upgrade free Malwarebytes , do a complete scan using it.

Let us know the results.

EDIT : Nice Congrats on it.
