    Hi! I'm using Bitdefender free.

    That worked for me, too! Thanks for the tip. Can you let me know what you replaced it with? The included Windows 10 Defender?

    Looks like the whole "Metro" side of Win10 doesn't work on my desktop PC. I un-installed McAfee and it still didn't work. Would it be corrupt registry as I remember seeing in one forum? Would a complete reinstall of Windows 10 (instead of upgrading from Windows 7) work?

    I upgraded my Win8 laptop and so far no issues. Start button and search box work.

    Since you've already "upgraded" it would seem you can do the clean install now, although I haven't tried it on my newly upgraded partitions.

    Worst case scenario, I think, might be that you have to reinstall Windows 7 and start over with the upgrade.

    Thank you, Wynona. Seriously thinking about your suggestion to reinstall 7 then upgrade.
