We are using Windows 10 LTSC build 1809 for our industrial systems. Recently they all got updated and since then the start menu and also action center won't open anymore. Also key combinations don't work anymore. So i started digging (spend more then 10 hours on this) and no matter what i try i can't seem to fix it. I do however found that the problem lies in update KB4551853 because when i remove this it all works again. But i wan't to fix this so then when next updates are run the issue doesn't return anymore.

FYI: i'm using the build in admin account to run our application as Kiosk by using Shell launcher v1

Things i tried so far

  1. SFC /scannow - No difference
  2. Dism /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth - No difference
  3. Run command below (but LTSC hasn't got a store) - No difference
Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.Windows.ShellExperienceHost | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
Get-AppxPackage Microsoft.Windows.Cortana | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
  1. Copied %localappdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Caches and %localappdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Caches and %localappdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Caches to the default user folder. - No difference
  2. Deleted above folders for default user and build in admin - No difference
  3. Removed update KB4551853 - This fixes the issue.
  4. Run driver and windows updates - No difference

And some small other things i cannot recall anymore. After each change i rebooted the computer just to be sure.
