sfc /scannow

Restart after the scan is over and see if it helped.

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

4] Open an elevated PowerShell window type the following and press Enter:

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

To open an elevated PowerShell prompt, type PowerShell in taskbar Search, and in the result ‘Windows Powershell’ which appears, right-click and select Run as administrator.
