Hii,
I urgently need some help regarding these two things:- (Windows 10)

1) My Windows Firewall won't turn on. In the services> Windows Defender Firewall> Properties are all grayed out (General and Log On Tab etc.).... and I get Error: 1058 when I try to Start the service. I tried restarting the service using cmd, not wokring.

2) All of the system apps like Image Viewer/ Video Editor etc....including the Microsoft App Store have stopped working, When I open them, Nothing happens at all. I tried to reinstall microsoft store using Powershell but it shows the error related to Firewall being absent.
Also, Windows Update is not working either.
I think all these issues are related, Any help would be appreciated, Thanks :)
