  • Hi,

    This is normally caused by a corrupted system file, I suggest to use system file checker to repair the corrupt file:

    1.Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Search. Type Command Prompt in the Search box, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.

    2.At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

    sfc /scannow

    As for more details, you can refer to this article:
