If the error just began fix with system restore.

If it is an old problem, try some of the alternate means to access CP.

Post back if these suggestions are not satisfactory.

OK, dont get discouraged, I try with the easiest thing first. Try this one.

Go to search
type cmd, do not hit enter
Right click, run as administrator.

In cmd type sfc /scannow. If errors are found try 3 times. Get back to me.

If the above does not work, this one should.

But try the above first.
