When I go to open file explorer, nothing happens.

When I go to open control panel, the window appears but no icons show up.

When I go to open Task Manager, I get the error 'C:\windows\system32\DUI70.dll'. I looked up how to resolve this issue, and it says to do a sfc /scannow, and I have tried that, but it says 'Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation' after 29%.

Also, when I try to delete an icon off my desktop background, the screen goes black for a couple seconds, and returns back to my desktop screen as if nothing happened.

I googled how to solve all these problems, but none of the solutions worked for me. I tried resetting the pc, but when I click the button to do so, I get the error 'C:\windows\system32\DUI70.dll'.

By chance, have you tried "System Restore" to an earlier point in time before you had a problem with explorer.
