I have a Lenovo YOGA 3, and it is about a year old. This problem has only come up recently. Every time I open the settings, it displays the menu with no problem, but as soon as I click any setting, there is a long pause, then it just closes. I cannot change my date & time settings, or connect to the internet as I cannot access the settings to do it in. Strangely, I can access the Bluetooth settings, but nothing else.
Please help, I have tried other methods but to no avail.

If so, then you might have some corrupt Windows System Files or disk errors, so try the following steps and see if they help.
Run a disk check (This will scan for errors in the Windows filesystem)
Test the settings, and if still not working, continue on and run the SFC scan
Run a System File Check (SFC) scan (this will check for corrupt Windows System Files.)
If the SFC scan was unable to fix all of the errors, then you would need to run the DISM utility to update the local Windows Component Store, and then run the SFC Scan again to repair the files using the updated files downloaded by DISM.
Note: After running the DISM utility successfully, you must run the System File Checker again to fix any corrupted system files left unrepaired earlier using the new files retrieved using DISM.

I am running Windows 10.
Yes, I am talking about the 'All Settings' from the Windows + A.
No, I cannot change the date & time from the corner, it does the same as the settings.
I ran the disk check and it did not work.
Then, I ran the SFC scan, and I it successfully started, but got to 'Verification 22% complete' and then came up with the message 'Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation'.
I haven't run DISM yet, should I still do that?

It sounds like you will have to run the SFC Scan in Windows 10 safe mode and then once in safe mode, run the SFC Scan again.
See Option 2 in the guide below to use the the Shift + Restart combination
to enter Safe Mode.
4 Ways to boot into Safe Mode in Windows 10
Once in Safe Mode follow steps earlier to run the SFC scan.
If the SFC Scan cannot repair all of the items and you need to run DISM, you many need to run that in Safe Mode as well, but if so, be sure to choose Safe Mode with Networking as it needs Internet access. Also note that Safe Mode with Networking will probably not be able to connect via WiFi, so you will need to used an Ethernet cable directly to your Internet router.
BTW Just to clarify, did the disk check run successfully, but did not fix the problem, or did it fail to run the disk check on restart?

Yes, the disk check ran successfully but did not fix the problem.
I have just rebooted using option 2, but after the 'Windows 10 notifies you that you can restart your device in order to change advanced boot options, including enabling Safe Mode. Press Restart.' stage, it did not restart it, but turned it off. I tried it again, and did the same.
Sorry to pile up the problems, but what should I do now? Should I try the other methods of getting into safe mode?
