First run System File Checker. Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator and run SFC /SCANNOW. Allow to complete, restart and test.

If no, run DISM.

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator.
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Scanhealth (takes 15 - 20 minutes).
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Restorehealth (takes 15 - 20 minutes).
Restart the computer and test.

Please let us know.

odd.  the problem was deploying sophos, which is now working (a share permission issue) and so even though the server greyed out and stopped/manual, its working.
