Try this.
Start Orb. Then tick on Devices and Printers.

Use this Tutorial and let us know what the results are.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Bluetooth fix!

Well after reading a different thread, I enabled bluetooth and that fixed the problem with the link to Devices and Printers. I did run the check of the systems software and it came out ok.
