Windows 10: Start, Cortana, Notifications - Corrupt Text and Icons

    Start, Cortana, Notifications - Corrupt Text and Icons

    I have slowly been fixing the issues I have run into with the Windows 10 upgrade, but I have one issue that continues to persist. The Metro text and icons in the Start Menu, Cortana, Notifications, etc become corrupt.

    (Cortana gone bad!)

    It takes a little time (few hours) but eventually they become corrupt and continue to worsen if I let them go. My temporary fix is a reboot or restarting Windows Explorer from the task manager. An update of my graphics drivers seemed to slightly improve the issue (maybe takes longer before they get scrambled). Context menus are not affected...

    Any suggestions?

    Yep - saw that one. In my case that menus are accessible and still work and I am not getting the Critical Error - they just have scrambled graphics.

    Scrambled Text on Start Menu

    Am also getting garbled text after awhile. Rebooting fixes it . . . temporarily. I installed the latest graphics driver from AMD but that hasn't made a difference, and 3D settings are either off or standard. See below:
