    Problem with the START icon


    Occasionally the start icon is not working. Nothing happens when I click on it. Looks like the whole taskbar is not working.

    Anyone can assist me in the matter?

    Perform the following steps:

    1) type: win + x keys (simultaneously)
    2) type: a

    These three steps together should open administrative command prompt
    4) type: sfc /scannow
    5) type: dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    6) chkdsk /scan
    7) net user test /add
    8) When these have completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into the thread9) shutdown /r
    10) When the computer reboots sign on with the new user named test
    11) Evaluate the start menu and the task bar and report your findings into the thread.
    12) reboot and try the user that was have problems with the start menu and task bar.
    13) Evaluate the start menu and task bar and report your findings into the thread.

    14) If the scannow and restorehealth did not fix the problem then click control + alt + delete to open task manager.

    Just do the easy way out - reinstall a backup copy of my Win10 Creator and everything working fine. Just wonder, could this problem surface due to another third-party softwares (Avast IS or IOBit softwares)?

    Anyway, thanks for your help.

    I highly recommend never using anything from IObit.

    Assuming you mean just a fresh copy of Windows 10 (Creator), did you succeed in keeping all your programs, without re-installing them?

    >> If so, how?

    >> I think the Windows Media Creation Tool offers a choice: with or without programs, the later leaving existing programs unaffected. Is that correct please?

    This sounds similar to a thread I started recently > KB4048954 update has caused unresponsive Task Bar items

    My solution is noted in the thread.

    Reason:
    I spend a lot of time on this forum and the Seven Forum reading many post.
    Through the years many members have had nothing but problems with IObit programs. Many had to do a complete Clean Install just to fix the problems IObit caused.

    Removing IObit dose not solve the problem in most cases because it doesn't fix the changes IObits has done.
    IObit's is a company that steals from other companies.

    IOBit Theft Conclusion - Malwarebytes News - Malwarebytes Forums


    Some weeks ago we presented evidence demonstrating that the Chinese company IObit had stolen Malwarebytes' database and incorporated it into their software. In the days that followed we saw a complete denial of wrongdoing by IObit. They ascribed the matches between their database and our own to anonymous sample submissions, a dubious claim which we debunked.
    In my opinion IObits is also probable stealing information from the computers it is installed on and calling home to China.


    China has been stealing intellectual properties and counterfeiting everything for a very long time. That is the way they do business in China.
