    Cortana and Start Menu Not Working


    After the most recent Windows Update, the Start Menu and Cortana stopped working. You can't type in the search bar and can't click on anything in the Start Menu. This is Windows 10 on a Dell XPS that was originally Windows 7. I tried a bunch of things and when I did a sfc /scannow, I got an error message that it could not fix a problem. Here is the portion of cbs.log:

    .. I tried a bunch of things and when I did a sfc /scannow, I got an error message that it could not fix a problem.
    Try sfc /scannow a few more times. Try DISM as well. See these tutorials....

    Note
    If SFC could not fix something, then run the command again to see if it may be able to the next time. Sometimes it may take running the sfc /scannow command up to 3 times with Fast Startup turned off and restarting the computer after each time to completely fix everything that it's able to.

    If not, then run the Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth command to repair any component store corruption, restart the PC afterwards, and try the sfc /scannow command again.

    sfc gave an error message each time I ran it. SO did DISM. It said the source was not found. I tried downloading the disk image from Microsoft and pointing DISM to the iso file but it said it could not find the source.

    As you already have the ISO, you could try an in-place repair install. This can keep all your files and installed apps, but will reinstall Windows. Start at step 4 in this tutorial.
