    What do you mean by refresh? I'm trying to figure out if theres a way not to wipe everything? Did you just reinstall from a usb/disc. Have you also reinstalled the update?
    Well there is an option in settings to do a wipe for personal use or if you are recycling the PC.
    I chose to not keep files or do a low level wipe and refresh but instead deleted files and did a normal refresh.
    It essentially resets Win 10 and ditches your files without a low level format, you will not need a USB stick, DVD, or your key to do this.

    Yeah that is an older solution but not a fix.
    Still a lot of work...I was going to do that yesterday afternoon but if I am moving those files anyway I would rather move to back up and do reset on OS so it is totally clean.
    Bort in that thread is me lol.

    Most issues related to updates are caused either by the security software or by the lack of a proper maintenance. You could try running Wise Disk Cleanup and advanced Windows Disk Cleanup, check health and file system as well.

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth

    if corrupted, run:

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth


    A few more commands to run, just to kill the time:
    Code:
    fsutil usn deletejournal /d /n c:
    chkdsk /scan
    winmgmt /salvagerepository
    del "%temp%\*" /s /f /q
    del "%systemroot%\temp\*" /s /f /q
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase
    cleanmgr /sageset:65535 & cleanmgr /sagerun:65535

    The above link worked fairly well. The method that worked best was running command prompt from safe mode, one of the safe mode options. The built in command prompt from troubleshooting options didnt work.

    What should I do if I get: "Error: 0x800f081f

    The source files could not be found.
    Use the "Source" option to specify the location of the files that are required to restore the feature. For more information on specifying a source location, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=243077. " This also happens with the sfc command

    You need to load Windows ISO/USB and select the source manually. See option 1, part 7.

    DISM - Repair Windows 10 Image

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:esd:E:\Sources\Install.esd:1 /limitaccess

    I'm currently facing the same problem. My start menu button are not working, the notification bar too. File explorer, Chrome works on the taskbar though and I'm able to right click on the taskbar to reach task manager.

    The other thing is Windows Store doesn't want to run, including games that came from it. Both my Candy Crush Saga and Soda just gave me a black screen and closes itself after a while. Microsoft Edge also could not be executed. Stuck at the blue "E" logo forever. EDIT: oh yeah and other MS programs also don't work for me, like Calculator, Calendar, Sports. Looks a lot like this https://i.imgur.com/sSx9Rvu.png

    Just installed the compatibility update MS released but I didn't notice anything different and the problem still persist. Help!

    Currently using a "Classic Shell" as an alternative for start menu, but really not looking forward to keep this as the permanent one. Also, sfc /scannow couldn't find anything, some strings that was meant for "Powershell" also didn't fix this issue and I'm really hopeful that someone here could help me out, and others who are also experiencing the same situation

    Now I'm just wondering if uninstalling the update through here would be a safe idea? https://i.imgur.com/UuYAIz8.png
