Windows 10 can’t open programs.

Q. After updating to the most recent version of Windows 10, I have encountered a few issues. The biggest one is that after signing in and waiting for everything to finish booting, i an unable to open any program on my computer with the exception on the task manager. Is anyone having this problem? Is there a way to fix it? I have been unable to actually use my computer for 3 days now due to this and several other issues. 

I should add that after trying to open one program (chrome), it isn’t showing as a running application, nor is it in the runnong processes in the task manager.
