    Right click Start button dont allow me open any of the tools

    Right click Start button dont allow me open any of the tools unless Run and search. If i click cmd/Task manager or other is not opening after anniversary update. SFC/scannow and Dism find no problems. Is there someway to fix it without clean install?

    Edit: Ok i find solution for my problem without reinstalling: Windows 10 Start Right-Click Context Menu Items Dont Open - Super User
    I found the solution after hours of searching. Windows 10 has issues with some shell extensions. See here: http://forums.hexus.net/windows/2968...win-8-1-a.html
    Using CCLeaner I was able to go into the Tools > Startup > Context Menu and disable shell extensions. I found out that it was QuickSFV that was causing this issue, so I disabled it and voila the items work again.

    I has QuickSFV installed like the user which posted solution, so using Ccleaner exactly same way and disabled QuickSFV shell extension fixed the problem.
