    That's an odd one - the more common complaint is the other way round: Star menu has stopped working on your main account but works on a newly created one (with the laborious fix of creating yourself a new account and moving over all your files, settings etc.)

    Try creating another new a/c after the sfc/downloads are done. If that works fine just delete the first new a/c. It's not as if there's anything you need to keep from its user profile, so not worth the bother of trying to fix it.
