    Windows 10 button, google chrome, and more wont work


    My windows 10 button, cortana, and google chrome won't work. The image for Microsoft edge and the windows store on the taskbar are black now and also won't open. I tried using the scan in powershell and it said that it couldn't find any problems. Also I believe my Nvidia drivers need updates but they also won't open it says it had to close. I already used malwarebytes to check for malware. I'm not sure what to do its been working for the whole time I have had windows ten which has been a decent amount of time but it just yesterday started this.

    Lost my start button lower left, and therefor also the whole menu. Had a question posted here in Ten Forum.
    Then I found a way: I reinstalled W10 as in the old days.
    To: file explorer - to: C: - to: ESD - to: Windows (post nr 3 or 4 from the top which also says $Windows) - to:
    setup_exe (which is an application, 79 KB, date: when W10 was installed) Dobble-click, and all pc/it problemas
    is gone in an hour.

    Please respond it says I can't keep my files when I upgrade and everything will be deleted is this what I do or can I keep everything? It says I can't keep it because my windows may be installed in an unsupported directory.

    OK I created a system image on my computer and I'm just going along with the everything will be deleted option since I don't feel like waiting until tomorrow to get an answer. Hopefully it works I guess.
