    Start Menu Crashing After Typing a Few Letters

    I just recently got a desktop from CyberPowerPC, gua2400bst model, and I noticed that whenever I go to use the start menu, it will open normally and I can still click on settings or tiles, but when I go to type to search, it will let me type for about 1 second, no matter how many letters it only lets me type for 1 second, and then it freezes for about 2 seconds then just closes automatically. If anyone could help that would be great, as I need to search for programs often.

    1) open administrative command prompt and run: Sfc /scannow
    2) run the Microsoft start menu troubleshooter:
    3) in case the above two steps don't work, create a test user and see if it works with the new user
