    I restored the hard drive image and all is well at the moment. I will see what happens next. Possibly a third party app is wiping out the start menu.

    Start Menu not working, solved by creating new user account


    I have had this problem for the past week or so, I tried the various fixes that had been posted, none of these worked.
    I had read in one of the posts that that a non-administrator account had a working start menu, so I decided to setup a second user account which opened with a working start menu. When I logged back into my administrator account this also had a working start menu even after a reboot. It will be interesting to see how long this keeps the start menu working.

    I restored the hard drive image I had made. I installed all updates. I have not had the problem since. My thought was that one of the updates cured the problem.

    I am running Windows 10 in VirtualBox, your reply has reminded me to export this installation in case of further problems.

    Well hopefully the new build comes soon and it will fix that problem. I haven't had that issue.

    Sounds like you got the problem under control. . .hence my idea is worthless (do a restart and do a recovery. . .Hope you have no further problems. . .

    All is well at the moment. But I still don't know the cause of the problem.

    The start menu quit working this morning. It was working yesterday (March 6). I installed Classic Shell, which so far seems to work fine. I can't seem to access the Universal UI (the old Metro) at all... no problem for me since I never use it.

    I have also tested the StartIsBack start menu on Windows 10. It will work fine at this point. A correction on this... StartIsBack will work with Build 9926, it will Not work with Build 10041.

    I have a problem with the 10041 build.

    I think I've narrowed it down to using the "store" app or updating/installing an app from their. After doing so when I click start I am left with the a persistent search box that never disappears and no start menu.

    I have trawled the thread, performed the action on the other page to no avail. Only thing it seemed to do was move the search box.
