  • This looks like a problem in your system, but there are not enough details to understand what's going wrong exactly: check the Windows "System" log in the Event viewer to see if there's any record related to the problem you're experimenting.
    Did you try to open a Control Panel applet by running it from the command line? For example, if you want to open the Add/remove software applet you type and execute

    control appwiz.cpl

    Does it work the right way or it does still close after 10 seconds?
