Try accessing from the Start button:

Press Start, then type "programs and features" (without the " ") into the search above the start button. You should now see it in the list above - touch it or press enter if it is highlighted.

Another way of accessing "programs and features" in the control panel is to click on the start orb, then type appwiz.cpl in the run box, hit Enter.

Though if you're having trouble accessing it from the control panel itself, you should run sfc scan a couple of times.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
