I'm using Microsoft Lumia 540. Around 4 hrs ago my phone got switched off due to low battery but after switching it on I can't see most of the apps. All the apps which were in the start screen are gone and are also gone from the more apps window. Even the call/ message is not visible. Did anyone of you face a similar issue?? Please help.
Also, when a WhatsApp message arrives - it shows on my notification but no action on clicking it and it's(the notification's) heading is not WhatsApp instead it shows some other random numbers and alphabets. It shows similar behavior when a text message arrives. Please help

Nothing worked so I had to hard reset it. The problem is gone. All apps are working fine now.
