    Start menu doesnt work anymore


    Hello.

    I am using windows 10 since a few weeks now and already encountered a startmenu bug earlier on. This was because of the Teamspeak Overlay which caused the startmenu to be completely unuseable. Ive removed this plugin and ever since everything worked perfectly, until a few days ago.

    I received a complete system update which brought me from the RTM version of Win10 to the Build 10532. Apparently im back to the insider preview. This time for windows 10 Professional.

    Ever since ms forced me to install this update my startmenu is completely unresponsive and doesnt work anymore.

    I also uninstalled avast already and tried to disable dev mode in PS with this:
    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
    Any Ideas?

    Thanks for the link icp.

    I tried the fix that you suggested but to no avail.

    I also tried to create a new user because this was mentioned in the post.
    The startmenu works for the new user.

    Maybe there are any other fixes to this?

    Thanks for your suggestion.
    The last reply in this thread, however, was back in September 2015.
    It's a good guess that the OP may have already solved his/her issue and is no longer looking for a solution or following the thread.
