This AM, I noticed my that laptop (running Windows 10) rebooted overnight. I presumed that Microsoft pushed its regular updates.
Upon logging into the system, I realized that all of my icons (both desktop and Windows Explorer) are missing. See attached screenshots.

Also, in the right pop-up pane, I noticed one notification indicating "catastrophic failure". "SYSTEM RESTORE" was disabled as well.
The laptop is less than 1 year old... do I really have to rebuild the entire system or is there may a known solution to this issue?
