Start Menu not working, had do download W8.1 startup Can't see any apps in Programs No Cortana No access to Action centre from Task bar volume or wifi control fm task bar Clock or calender Onedrive can't run as an administrator Onedrive trouble shooter can't work with W10 Had to reinstall DVD drive via Regedit entry

There are probably others that I'm missing. Have tried the following fixes

C:\WINDOWS\system32>sfc /scannow

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth sfc /scannow powershell Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

Other than that Windows running as normal

Maybe a system restore to when it was working ok.

Another thing to try is to make sure Windows Firewall is running even though you may have your own security firewall running. Worth a try it helped me with a few problems when I first used W10.

Have you had a look in Event Viewer to see if that shows up the problem.

After googling it I found that Avast was causing problems. If you do not use Avast ignore last.

One chap had all of your problems and ran C Cleaner which worked but then again I suppose it could make it worse.
