    Default Windows 10 Start Menu broken/missing

    Just came home and was greeted with 'Windows installed updates' on my PC - it's usually on 24/7.
    No big deal, good news perhaps... maybe not.

    My Start Menu button now does sweet FA!
    Cortana Search is also being ignorant. Icons on the Task Bar work and also in the task area.

    Currently running sfc /scannow to see what Microsoft have decided to break in my absence, but I was wondering if any of you guys have come home to a dead system?

    EDIT -
    SFC found fuck all problems, yet Start Menu MIA

    Yeah mine did some updates. No problems with Start Menu but have just discovered every time I use a USB flash drive it works fine until I unplug it, then if you plug it back in it makes the noise but is not visible in explorer or devices.

    Reboot then you see it for one more use.. wtf . Got to plan my usb use now ffs. Use once reboot.
    Cunts.

    Had that as an intermittent issue ever since I upgraded to 10. I also suspect it's something to do with updates.

    I have accepted that this is "progress".

    Thanks to Over Carl

    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.
