pushing the 'windows' key should bring up the start menu--which should allow access to the control panel--then remove the 'customization' software.

Do this tutorial SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker it will not harm any data or programs you have installed it will try to find and repair any corrupt system files that you have.
