Using W10, when I left click on the Windows button on the bottom left of the task bar, I just get a message telling me there is a problem, and they will try and fix it on a restart- never happens, Also Cortana is not working at all - no response at all when I click on it. This is on an HP laptop. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have also tried system restotre, but no joy.

Have you tried re-installing??

Not sure if I can do this without losing everything on my hard drive, as I have no way of backing up

Right click start- Command prompt (admin) - type

sfc /scannow

press enter let windows scan for and repair missing or corrupt windows files.

when completed type exit to come out of command prompt then start - poer - restart ( not shutdown)

when it reboots see if that has made a difference.
