In a couple days ago the Windows start menu is stopped working on my computer and the right click menu not show, when I make right click a task bar icon.

  1. I don't have restore point so I can't make restore.
  2. I ran SFC/SCANNOW commmand the result was: "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations"
  3. I tryed reinstall metro apps with this command:

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

    I no get error message, the command was successfully executed but didn't fix anything.

  4. I tryed reinstall windows updates follow this command:

    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    But seams like doesn't work either.

  5. I maked a new user and logged in to that account, but the start menu and task bar right click menu still not worked, the problem still the same.

At this point I gived up, unestly I have no idea why I have this problem after many, many fixing methods.
I need help, I don't would like to reinstall my Windows is so painful.

  • "DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth" isn't a command to reinstall Windows. My suggestion use the Reset feature within Windows 10 to solve this problem – Ramhound Nov 1 '16 at 11:14
  • @Ramhound I think you misreading something I said: I tryed reinstall windows updates – New Bie in Programing Nov 1 '16 at 12:27
  • That command doesn't reinstall Windows Update either. – Ramhound Nov 1 '16 at 12:49
  • It does in powershell look after in this article: home.bt.com/tech-gadgets/computing/… – New Bie in Programing Nov 1 '16 at 13:28
  • The article indicates it will repair your Windows installation, not reinstall Windows or reinstall Windows Update, you used the word "reinstall" which has specific meaning when it comes to Windows ( for instance Reset/Refresh features both reinstall Windows ). – Ramhound Nov 1 '16 at 13:34

This bug occur because has invalid sets of permmissions on regedit: HKEY_Current_User; and invalid permissions on %UserProfile% (here set your current user owner) and %ProgramData% (reset to defaults)

  • You should explain to the author in detail, how they can reset their ACL, for their %UserProfile% and %ProgramData% directories. – Ramhound Nov 1 '16 at 13:32
  • I gessed out thx the direction, but It's dosen't worked. I need to restart windows explorer after? – New Bie in Programing Nov 1 '16 at 13:59
