try this ...
type services in the start search, click the result with the cog .
in the window that opens scroll down to Desktop Window Manager Session Manager.
click on it to highlight it , then on the left side click start this service, if it is already started ,stop it then restart it.
also right click on the Desktop Window Manager Session Manager/select properties and check it is set to automatic on the startup type.
