    Start Menu - Can this be fixed?


    Does anyone know how to fix the items below. The ones circled in red. And what is the one circled in green?

    10061 start menu is really getting me frustrated. I've tried all the known fixes... WSREST, Reregister apps, try to install them again, etc. Done all the DISM and SFC things.

    And why can't I get the MSN Sports and MSN Weather that was on earlier builds? I don't care for the new ones.

    I understand the current "bug" about pinned win32 apps, and can live with it until they hotfix it, but the rest is frustrating!

    The weather app is a new version. Not sure about the MSN Sports. Is this an upgrade install? I would do a clean install. The preview can be buggy sometimes and a clean install fixes most things.

    I've done a clean install 5 times. As local, as MSacct, all whichways! When I click on any of the ones circled in red, I get something like "first things first, let's add an account", if I click on it, FLASH-BANG gone! Mail doesit, calendar, people just poops out! Something is seriously wrong!

    Where did you download the build?. Maybe a buggy ISO?

    From MS thru normal fast ring update. Grabbed the install.esd before install per Kari's tutorial and made ISO from it.

    I thought it might be buggy, too..... so I restored from a 10049 image and tried again, same.

    Clean installed from 10049, updated to 10061 again. Same result.

    Something obviously is not together! I've never had this much problem upgrading. Been doing it since 9841!!!! Way back when!!!
