Array bounds exceeded

I am no expert in computer science,just a hard working slob that tries to understand and is fascinated by all things computing...I have seen something new tonight...when trying to open settings I get this "array bounds exceeded" message,and when I search for an answer,these guys are talking a language I cannot fathom..Please can some kind soul explain in simple terms what it means,and how to make it go away...thank-you.

My name is Andre Da Costa; an Independent Consultant, Windows Insider MVP and Windows & Devices for IT MVP. I'm here to help you with your problem.

This likely means there is a corruption in the Settings app or your Windows 10 installation.

Here are some things you can try....

Press Windows key + X
Click Windows PowerShell (Admin).

At the command prompt, type the following, hit Enter the restart.

Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

If that does not work...

Try these first to see if they work:

Open Start, type: CMD
Right click CMD
Click Run as administrator

Type in at the prompt OR Copy and Paste these one at a time : (Hit enter after each)

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

Also run the System File Checker utility:
Open Start, type: CMD
Right click CMD
Click Run as administrator

At the Command Prompt, type: sfc/scannow

This will check for any integrity violations

Restart your system

Check your hard disk for any errors:
Click Start
Type: CMD, from the results, right click Command prompt
Click 'Run as Administrator'
At the Command Prompt, type: chkdsk /r /f
Hit Enter
When you restart your system, your computer will be scanned for errors and attempts will be made to correct them.
