No longer have Audio, Start Menu, or Settings.

Hello! I'm currently in serious need of some help with my Windows 10 PC. I have searched for answers to my problems but it always leads to another error or issue. If anyone has any answers to whats going on below please let me know!

Randomly my PC decided to freeze up completely. I could not move the mouse and nothing was changing on the screen. After around 30 minutes of waiting for it to hopefully unfreeze, nothing happened. I decided it was long enough and used the restart button on my PC to hopefully fix the freeze. It did fix the freeze but brought many more issues. 

After the restart audio has stopped working, the windows button and search button on the taskbar no longer work and right clicking the desktop and selecting Display Settings/Personalize brings up an error box below.

      I have a machine running Windows 10, fully updated. I have a pair of speakers plugged in to the rear jack and d they appear in the audio switching window choices at the bottom right of the screen (Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio)) along with my Headset (Plantronics C-310M).
      Both the speakers and the headset ping happily when tested in the Sound/Playback Devices window. But the switch doesn't work: I cannot select the headset.
      I thought it might be an AMD High Definition Audio Device G246HL which appears in the Playback devices but I uninstalled that to find it came back on rebooting, so I disabled it but to no avail.
      I would be very grateful if anyone were able to point me in the right direction to solve this very irritating problem. Thanks in advance
