    Start menu stopped working

    The Startmenu stopped loading at startup and/or when depressing window. It use to work fine. New updates are messing up and resetting many of my settings.

    I've had a non responsive Start Menu happen several times now. Happens if I upgrade by running setup.exe from the current Windows install. I upgraded 3 PC's from Pro to Enterprise by mounting my Enterprise ISO and running setup.exe. I then had a non working start menu on the first log in. Rebooting has fixed it though. Non of the icons on my taskbar would work either, it was like explorer crashed and wouldn't restart.

    It is Monday. I realized to run SFC from the command prompt. It is running now.
