    Start doesnt open


    Hello i have moderately annoying thing, my start menu wont open after start.
    Start doesnt open-start-1.png
    It have different icon that it should, i dont see any pinned programs except cortana.

    I can right click on menu with this options:
    Start doesnt open-start-2.png
    When i press exit, my start menu is back

    Start doesnt open-start-3.png
    I can live with that, its not that big deal. Tho i tried many solutions i found on web that should have solved it, but they did nothing.

    Just wondering if anyone encountered that and know solution

    Thank you ztruker. Tried to run this with this output:

    Start doesnt open-start-menu.png

    I guess i should find a way to "reinstall" cortana and that shell so i can apply fix?

    Hello phaetoncz,

    You might see if re-registering the Start menu below may help.

    Thank you for your time and help Brink and Ztuker. I eventually found (while closing that bugged start) there was Gigabite something on it. Since i uninstalled Gigabite smartswitch (some utility for MB), i have no problem again.
