    I can not delete the tiledatelayer folder - get a message it's in use.
    Maybe try re-booting into safe mode, and delete there?

    'Boot into safe mode (no networking), access services.msc via Run, and stop 'tiledatamodelsvc' in order to delete the TileDataLayer folder.'

    I've been trying to do some of the suggested solutions on this page, but I have some additional problems which prevent me from doing so. E.g. I cannot start Powershell as an admin, not even with the solution suggested in the reply before me, because when I replaced CMD with Powershell in the right-click start "menu", it simply won't start and neither can I right click on anything in a folder or the taskbar itself with the exception of right-clicking on the start icon or right-clicking tray-icons like Dropbox. Also the start menu won't appear, neither does the search option, even Edge won't start (I'm using Chrome anyways). Some times the task bar freezes, but tray-icons like Dropbox will still show that it's updating something when it is updating something and remain normal when it's doing nothing. I can right-click the background, but neither the screen settings and the costumization will open. I can however still use Winkey+R and open stuff from there. But the main problem is, I cannot open anything as an admin, because right-clicking does not work.
    Did you try Win+X then opening cmd as admin,and going to powershell from cmd

    Found this and it worked for me:

    Open powershell with admin privileges
    Copy and paste this line at the PS prompt:

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    You might have to wait a second for it to appear, when it does hit enter and wait until the prompt returns from PS

    Don't know how long it will last but it's working now.....

    Hi. I tried this and everything was denied. Did not reboot to try it yet, but is this normal?

    I already did all the other suggested fixes - ran disc services, powershell and command promp in admin mode and ran the suggested fixes, but nothing works for me. I'll re-boot and try again, then read the rest of this thread.
    Find the folder where this file was downloaded, right-click and run as administrator. That's how I got it to run. Good luck.

    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.

    This didn't work for me, but my internet does not work anymore. Wi-fi is turned on, but it does not connect. It shows the small computer icon with the red cross. How can I fix this?

    also, none of the above solutions worked for me.
    I have a samsung laptop which I upgraded from windows 7 to 10 about a month and a half ago. 2 weeks ago the start menu stopped working, when I try to open it it says: critical error, start menu stopped working. My Windows 10 version is Dutch :/ so no cortana, I tried every possibility I found on the web, none worked. Also, my taskar icons: volume, network, time and date, battery and message center don't work when I click on them, language does work.
    I did a system file checker, no corrupt files were found.
    I reinstalled all Windows app, no effect
    I have no avast Antivirus
    I tried restarting in safe mode, when it starts in safe mode, it says (translated from dutch) it needs an app to open ms-windows-store -> in Dutch: u hebt een nieuwe app nodig om dit ms-windows-store te openen
    I did a refresh of Windows 10 (without removing apps or documents, using the tool on this link: Windows 10)
    I don't see 'All Application Packages' in the register-editor (as suggested here: Windows 10 Start Menu, metro apps, and taskbar icons not working - Windows 10 Forums )

    All of the above didn't work. My girlfriend, who upgraded from windows 8 to 10, had the same problem after a few weeks. On that laptop the last thing I tried, refreshing, worked, all the other not.

    The strange thing is that sometimes when I reboot it, when I click on the start menu button it doesn't give the error but still doesn't work, and occasionally (exceptionally) it does work, but there are no apps displayed

    creating a new user profile seems pointless to me because it does not solve the problem, and a complete reinstall is something I only want to do if it's the only possible fix (documents, programs and settings)

    Is the problem privacy settings? I have almost everything unselected

    I hope it was clear,
    thank you

    I fixed mine by creating a new user account and deleting the old (corrupted) one. A silly solution but it worked. It was before I found this thread.

    I ran through most of the ideas around the internet for this problem. This was the last one tried and it worked for me. First one listed nothing happened after the second one now it is working.
