Try ending all processes except for system ones. It might be some program preventing you from opening, like several viruses prevent you from opening Task Manager.

Also, try opening it via this shortcut entered in the Run panel:

Start Menu--> Run--> control desk.cpl

Or, double click on the file:

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\desk.cpl

Other than that, I'm not exactly sure...

If you have ATI catalyst, it has its own process is the taskbar where you can change resolutions on the fly and change other options. Not sure for Nvidia though.
