    Thanks for your help
    Your welcome, not sure as said before how user account affects this as there can be settings differences between accounts privelages, but can not see how this affects start menu and cortana. Originally was there only one user account, meaning just you ?

    Basically I have had start menu problems in the past but to cut a long story short I restored my PC back to a weekly image I do with True Image and the problem did not return, I installed Threshold 2 last Saturday and my PC ran fine, I used it last night without changing anything or getting any problems but I switched it on today and the first thing I notice is that some of the icons in the system tray which I set to be shown were hidden, I corrected that straight away.

    Then I clicked on my windows icon to access the start menu and it's now not showing also Cortana does not work, apart from that the PC is normal. I can open the Calculator and Edge modern apps as I have the shortcuts on the desktop.

    I have run SFC/ SCANNOW in safe mode and in normal mode and it tells me I have errors but they can not be fixed.

    I'm so fed up with it now, unless I can find a fix I'm just going to live with it, I can access my start menu folders from file explorer and most of my most used programs have short cuts on the desktop.

    Anyone else having similar problems and know of a fix?

    Thanks

    Tony

    Same thing is happening in safe mode which will eliminate running processes and some drivers.
