    Hi, have you checked your event log (Event Viewer) and reliability history (e.g. type reliabi in the search bar) for clues?

    Does the same thing happen after
    a. a clean boot
    b. in Safe Mode?
    That did not fix anything. I guess I will live with it for now.

    It wasn't meant to fix anything, but it does tend to show it's not an effect of an installed program or task schedule, assuming that you left your PC long enough (several hours) in each of those states to demonstrate you still had the problem.

    So, I'll ask specifically to be sure..
    Did you leave your PC for several hours in Safe Mode and did you observe the same problem in Safe Mode?

    And when you looked at your event log and reliability history, did you or didn't you see anything around the time that you observed the symptom?

    Hope you can understand why I have to ask.

    I didn't leave my PC for several hours in any of these states as that would be very inconvenient.
    I really don't mind restarting the PC every day as I have gotten used to it now. I just wish it would just work all the time.

    ????
    Could not fix or didn't find anything to fix?

    You could try this:

    Right click the Windows icon (aka Start button) on the Taskbar
    Select Command Prompt (Admin)

    Enter the following lines in the Command Prompt window:

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    SFC /ScanNow

    If there are any errors on the screen after the commands run,
    Navigate to C:\Windows\Logs
    Right click the CBS folder
    Select Send to > Compressed (zip) folder
    answer yes to place on Desktop
    Attach the zip folder to your next post

    Full tutorials:
    Run DISM in Command Prompt
    Run SFC /ScanNOW in Command Prompt

    If your update is stuck, like mine was. Manually download it from the Windows Update Catalog site.

    - you could have left it overnight...
    and to avoid it sleeping etc, download & run 'Don't Sleep' (free)

    If it didn't show the same problem that would suggest not a Windows corruption.

    Windows 10 Start Menu goes away after a few hours.


    It seems that the new Anniversary update fixed the Start Menu problem.

    Hasn't fixed it yet.

    I've just learned to live with it for the time being. Its to much of a hassle for me to fix and I've tried everything there is to try. Maybe Windows will roll out another update that will fix this.
