Running Windows 10, Dell XPS 13

I first noticed the problem about two weeks ago. Every time I restart my laptop I receive a message that Windows Firewall is turned off. I'm given the option to turn it back with a "Click here" option. But that does nothing. I also noticed that the Windows antivirus icon that is always in my taskbar is no longer visible.
I went into Windows security to turn on the firewall manually, but no matter what I attempt I get no response. It's locked in Off. I went into Services, and under description every service description reads "Failed to read description. Error code 2"
What's going on? I have my hammer at my side. What do I hit first?
