    I had this problem back in November. I tried all the fixes, powershell script, sfc /scan now, etc. the only way i could fix it was to create a new windows 10 profile and start from scratch. Now its Jan 18 and the issue started again. Start menu wont work, neither would app programs. Is there any new fixes for this problem?

    Steps I tried
    -Ran SFC /Scannow
    -Ran powershell as administrator, ran the script everybody tried
    Get-appxpackage -all *shellexperience* -packagetype bundle |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + \appxmetadata\appxbundlemanifest.xml)}
    -Stop State Repository Service and deleted C:\Users\AffectedUserName\AppData\Local\TileDataLayer. Restarted services/rebooted to recreate TileDataLayer folder.
    -Ran Regedit and created EnableXAMLStartMenu in the correct location. Set it to 0.
    -Created a new user profile and migrate all my data over(fixed the problem only for 2 months).

    Going to try the following below later on today and post the results. Found these on another forum. It work for a few people.

    1. Login to your current profile
    2. Press Win+X, and select "Command Prompt (Admin)"
    3. Enter the following commands, in this order
      1. net user "TempAdmin1" "password1" /add
      2. net user "TempAdmin2" "password2" /add
      3. net localgroup administrators "TempAdmin2" /add

    4. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del, click Sign Out
    5. Login to the "TempAdmin1" account using password "password1"
    6. Logout, and then login to the "TempAdmin2" account, using "password2" (note: you must fully sign out, not just switch users)
    7. Open File Explorer, select View, then check the box marked "Hidden Items"
    8. Navigate to C:\Users\TempAdmin1\AppData\Local\TileDataLayer (click "continue" to gain access when prompted)
    9. Right Click the folder "Database" & Copy
    10. Now, navigate to the same folder for your damaged profile (C:\Users\YOUR_USERNAME\AppData\Local\TileDataLayer)
    11. Right click "Database", and rename to "Database.BAD"
    12. Right click empty area in the folder, and select Paste
    13. Reboot, then sign back in with your original profile.

    I have experienced this after messing with Windows services and packages via dism.
    Undoing changes did bring the functionality back.

    I have attached a batch file to reset all services (and optionally device drivers) to defaults.
    Coupled with the solution posted above by flhthemi, should fix most cases.
    Second this! Thank you, this worked for me like a charm.

    Navigate to C:\Users\TempAdmin1\AppData\Local\TileDataLayer (click "continue" to gain access when prompted)
    Right Click the folder "Database" & Copy
    I just fixed this myself today using a very similar method:
    1. Create 2 temporary user accounts, e.g. TempUserA and TempUserB
    2. Login to one of the temporary accounts, e.g. TempUserA
    3. Copy the folder "TileLayerData" and subfiles from the other temporary user account (e.g. TempUserB) to the account with the problem (e.g. MyAccount):
    - Open Windows Explorer > turn on "Show hidden files" > navigate to "c:\Users\TempUserA\AppData\Local" > copy the "TileLayerData" folder (c:\Users\TempUserA\AppData\Local\TileDataLayer) > navigate to the "Local" folder for the account with the problem (e.g. c:\Users\MyAccount\AppData\Local\) > paste the contents of the clipboard there and overwrite all files.
    4. Logout then login with the account with the problem (e.g MyAccount).


    The command line options you mentioned above in your post are all correct and can be user for my method too. It's very similar, except I copied the whole TileDataLayer folder. I haven't tried just copying the edb file.
    I had success with it where no other attempted solution has worked (I've tried six other solutions).
    It was quick and easy to do.

    Ever since the Jan 13th update my laptop once again moving like a potato.
    My start menu nor taskbar is working.
    I have to press Windows Key+X to access file explorer control panel etc and i even use it to shut down my laptop.
    luckily i can use the tab menu to select different screens because once i minimize they disappear since the taskbar not working.
    It took me sometime to get command prompt(admin) because it also running very slow.
    I did a sfc/scannow this morning but I had to leave home before it finished but I'm really hoping the sfc/scannow helps because I need my laptop for school and I'm already behind on work sigh*
