Hello, and welcome to Apple Support Communities!
Please try the following:
Go to the Finder.
Hold the Option key and click the Go menu, then select Library.
Navigate to the Preferences folder.
Find "com.apple.systempreferences.plist" and "com.apple.systempreferences.plist.lockfile".
Drag those two files to the trash. Do not change any other files.
See if you can open System Preferences now.
