    Taskbar Freeze after CreatorsUpdate

    I did a fresh install of W10 using the MediaCreationTool and I'm having a problem here with my taskbar, its not 100% repro rate but it occurs at least 2-3 times during the day which is annoying.

    The taskbar freezes whenever I hover my cursor over any icon, I dont even have enough time to click on that icon because it goes into a 2-4 seconds freeze. The good thing is that it recovers automatically, the bad thing is that it is pissing me off, never had this kind of issue before with W10, well.. at least before CU.

    Any idea whats causing this ?

    Thank you!

    Please create a new test user and see whether the problem is or is not present with the test user.


    Also run administrative command or powershell command prompt sfc /scannow

    If you are using windows 10 version 1607 also run dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth.

    If there is no change with the new user account and if sfc has no integrity violations please place into clean boot and see whether the problems are fixed.
