    start and taskbar icons were removed after update

    I've had my new HP Windows 10 for 2 months. Without asking, it was just updated, and took a couple of hours. When it was completed, all my taskbar icons were removed, I can't access the start button, can't open up "ask me anything" button, and probably other things. What to do? Can they be found somewhere? Setting up these icons took some time, not too happy about this. Please let me know what can be done, as easily as possible - and how to prevent this happening again

    I had a similar incident happen to me I had win 10 working perfectly, and here came this BIG update.It took awhile to install,
    so I just waited on it. When it was finished and computer restarted my computer was ruined. I tried everything I
    knew to get it going again. Finally out of desperation I gave up, formatted the hard drive and reinstalled windows 7, it
    works beautifully with win 7, so why update to 10.. NOT ME.
