Welcome to TSG prowler351

You may have a virus/worm such as Blebla which commonly causes this problem and you should do an updated antivirus scan.

But first try this. Do a Find Files for *.cpl and click each one with that extension (control panel extension) to see if they ALL open individually. If one does not it could keep the Control Panel from opening. If they open that way, but not from within the Control panel itself, a virus is more suspect.

You can do an online scan here:

If blebla is found and cleaned, you will probably still need to repair the registry. See this link and follow instructions for using the blebla.inf file if necessary.
