I just did a clean install of Windows 10 and right at the beginning anything was working fine. After I downloaded some drivers for my video cards and restarted my PC, I found that my start menu was not opening and that I can't search for any desktop applications besides Chrome.
I can search for applications like Control Panel and Run but clicking on them does absolutely nothing.
There also seems to be an invisible icon on the task bar as well. Hovering over it, it says store but there's no icon for it. Right clicking on it doesn't bring anything up so I can't unpin it either. I can just move it around and when I click on it, it brings up the store page a few minutes later (very delayed).
In total I have 3 problems that needs to be addressed. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could offer some insight.
I found another forum post very similar to mine and one of the suggestions on how to get the start menu to work was to rename the TileDataLayer file. This seems to work for me but my start menu is very empty. All it contains is my username, power, and all apps.
On another note, I am currently on Version 1511 (OS Build 10586.104). I will update to Anniversary Update and see if that fixes it.
