If you are using MS Office & have KB4461522, that is the culprit.

Uninstall KB4461522 from Add/Remove Programs and it should come good.

I need to examine these logs.

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it onto your Desktop. If your default download location is not the Desktop, drag it out of it's location onto the Desktop.
If we have to run Farbar more than once, refer this SS.
Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the Desktop.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt) on the Desktop.
The logs are large, upload them using one of these. No time delays/Captcha-I'm not a Robot/account/registration needed. Give us the links please.

What are you trying to do when you get the error message? GetDateFormatEx was introduced in Windows Vista, so if you're trying to run some program, you'll need to get a version that supported Windows XP.

You're not going to find Windows Updates in Add/Remove Programs unless you check the box next to "Show updates" >>>

I'm afraid that if you continue to rely on an eighteen-year-old operating system you are going to increasingly run up against applications that don't work.
