So in the middle of the day (worked fine in the morning), I come to find out that all the crap listed in my Title starts to happen. Internet Explorer 11 also doesn't fully function: some sites fail to load or are incomplete. I am at my wit's end as I've already tried a number of "fixes" to no avail. Non-windows System tray icons function correctly (eg. Steam, Outlook 2013, nVidia, etc.)
- Powershell command to reset Windows 10 Apps
- ALL APPLICATION PACKAGES permissions up the wazoo to various folder/registries
- System restore to 1 week ago and 3 weeks ago (oldest I have)
- SFC and DISM commandline commands
- I even made an empty profile and that didn't work either.
Everything works fine in SAFE mode, but that doesn't help me at all. I'm pretty sure I'm screwed because if a System Restore doesn't fix it, what short of a reset/reinstall of Windows 10 will?
Please tell me someone has something as I really don't want to do that. One "different" thing I have is that my Users folder is located away from my OS (C:) drive due to space restrictions of the SSD. Nothing has gone wrong in the 1 year I've had Windows 10 up until now.
Edit: Firefox became broke from Restores and I find out I can't even download files in IE 11. My PC is seriously borked. Had to get a USB from another PC.
Edit 2: This is the following error from Event Viewer whenever I try to Right-click something on the taskbar, if it helps. Geez, it looks like it's just another Windows 10 app that fails, argh.
