    Sometimes an apparent irrelevant action works wonder.
    How about do a couple of reboots ?

    You might need to find out if you should have updates to be installed.
    Since you cannot use the Start button or the Search bar, try this way...........
    On the bottom right of the taskbar, next to Time, there is an icon called Notification > if you click it, do you see All settings ?
    If yes, click it > click Update & Security > click Check for updates.

    If none works for you, try this method.........................

    Right click at it > click Command Prompt (Admin) > type powershell > press Enter key.
    At the flashing prompt, copy and paste this command line ( to avoid typo it's best to apply Copy/paste method)......
    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    > press Enter.

    Sorry since all my other pcs and laptops are winxp that's how you'd do it on xp. It's actually run-type explorer.exe and that will restart the process
