The major thing, however, is that ever since Windows Update installed the latest "fixes" yesterday, October 14, 2015, all hell has broken loose, relatively speaking. I have no access to the Action Center, Edge won't start, and worst of all Start won't work. Right-click functionality is still there, but left-clicking results in a big error box popping up telling me that there is a problem with my start menu, and that they will attempt to fix it after I sign out and sign back in again. I sign out, sign back in, and the problem persists.
In other words, its unusable. You probably have some registry problems which a windows repair should fix.

What I would do is restore to a known "ok" point and backup every important data there, then do a complete reinstall or a windows repair. No hassle trying to iron out causes. Could be a myriad of things.

WU ran the same update for me yesterday, applied with no problems. Everything works.
I did notice System host process run from time to time so my laptop goes to turboboost mode for 2-5 minutes a day.

Also - Getting facebook notifications! for messages - finally! (hope it lasts)

Dont go mad over windows problems, believe it or not, my friend with a macbook air has major issues with it
But otoh restoring that and restoring windows are worlds apart....Sigh.

One last thing - An upgrade is an upgrade. Clean install is the best way to go.
