Endless loop on wallpaper will not load desktop

HP Recommended
Pavilion 23 touchscreen
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I don’t know if anyone can help you or not, I can get past the password section but when I get to the wallpaper it goes to an endless loop. I can press control alt delete and bring up the task bar. When I bring up the task bar if I press task manager it disappears.
