Well, first open a run command and type "control" if you still can't access the control pannel perhaps a group policy was set. Now, to fix this problem do the following: open a run command and type "gpedit.msc" this opens the group policy console, then under "user configuration" expand "administrative templates" then select "control pannel" note...don't hit the plus next to "control pannel" just select control pannel, then in the details pane right click "prohibit access to the control pannel" and select "properties" one the dialog box opens select "disabled".
then of course apply and ok and close the the console.
Note. "Group policy is a very powerful console in windows and shouldnt be used unless the user has the proper knowledge in its understanding"
hopes this helps
