I only see that message in Safe Mode.  Did the machine start in Safe Mode for some reason?
get

Otherwise, "Get Started" is a Store App. I wonder if there is an issue with the Store.

The answer is right in the error message. Please care to read it.
You activated and use the built-in administrator account "administrator" with apps - a dangerous thing. That's why Microsoft has disabled apps for him.

Use another admin account for working (if you feel you need to work as admin at all), not the built-in account. Yes, there is another workaround, but I would not recommend it.

I agree with the above. Run a Windows 10 Repair Install from the Media Creation Link posted above

If you can really only boot safe mode, then that is a totally different question and should be handled in a different thread. The solution to your "this app can't open" is obvious and I already answered it.

So many have contributed to possible solutions I truly need to close this. I had to rebuild my system for everything to work (at least for now). I'll equally divide points to all that have responded. In my opinion it is the best I can do. Thank you all kindly

It seems the user account control is enabled as well. Try disabling the user account control and see how it turns out.
