    Do the following, should fix it.

    Open a Elevated Command Prompt:
    Press WIN + X to open Start context menu.

    Select Command Prompt (Admin)​.

    Enter the following command in sequence. Be patient as they can take awhile to run:

    Dism /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    sfc /scannow

    Reboot and see if that fixed it.
