Ctrl+alt+del menu & power button icon missing in Windows 8.1

  1. Hello!

    I don't know what I did to cause this or how something like this could even happen, but I am hoping someone here might be able to explain and provide a fix. I have tried multiple fixes provided on the net, but none of hem seem to be working.

    Currently, on my start menu, the power button icon that used to be there that I could press to show me options like sleep, shutdown, and restart just disappeared, and I can't figure out how to bring it back.

    Also, when I press Ctrl+Alt+Del, the menu is just completely gone!

    Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Does it have something to do with the registry?

    I have attached images that illustrate my problem.

    Thanks in advance!
