I can't open File Explorer or Control Panel or Windows Security

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have been trying to open File Explorer, but I am greeted with a blank white page. 


So I thought of going to Control Panel and see if something helps there. But when I open it, the same another blank page.


So i thought some malware must be there and went to Windows Defender buy instead I get greeted with a message saying "this app can't open. A problem with windows is preventing windows security from openeing. Refreshing your PC might help"


Then, I tried resetting (by keeping my files in other drives as I don't have a backupexternal drive)


But the same problem persists.


I attached the photos of the same. 


Please help me with this.
