Have you tried replacing it with known good copies (both the 32 and 64 bit versions)? I am not familiar with this process, so I don't provide instructions on how to do it safely. I do know that doing this wrong and render your system unbootable - so be careful!!!
Have you posted a CBS log so one of the Windows Updates experts can assist with replacing the corrupt files (start a new topic with SFC.exe and CBS log in the title).
Other things to try would be:
- a System Restore to a point before this happened
- a RESET using the Keep My Files option (this will remove applications installed after the RESET point was made, but should leave your data alone).
- a repair install of W10: https://www.winhelp.us/non-destructive-reinstall-of-windows-8-and-8-1.html
- backup your stuff and then do a RESET using the Remove Everything option

If this happened to me, I'd restore from a recent full system backup I make regularly to an external hard drive. This is just one of many reasons why they're necessary.
Make regular full system backups or you'll be sorry sooner or later.

Just FYI - Windows is moving in the direction that Niweg states. It's becoming more and more common to just reset rather than repair (and it's usually much quicker!).
And, if you have a good backup of your data it's relatively painless.
And, if you'd like, there are methods to incorporate a system backup into the Windows RESET process - so you don't lose your programs and/or settings that you originally setup when you setup Windows: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/616536/creating-a-windows-backup-image/
