Windows 10 Start Menu Critical Error – Fixed
Windows 10 start menu critical error has become a common issue with Windows 10 users. If your start menu takes to long to respond, then you’re likely to encounter this error in a matter of weeks of a few months.
There are two likely causes of this
- Conflict with Dropbox for Windows Desktop
- Cortana system files have been corrupted
If you have Dropbox installed, just uninstall it and restart your computer. There’s also a possibility it could be your Cortana even if you have Dropbox installed, so I’ll recommend you eliminate this option first.
If you don’t have Dropbox installed on your computer or you’ve already gone though the first option with out success then it’s probably your Cortana. Unfortunately you can uninstall Cortana (although you can but the process is not so straight forward) but it can be disabled, but that won’t solve the problem.
In some cases, all you need to do it just restart you computer and all will be fine. Other cases, you might need to start your computer in safe mode then restart back to normal and the start menu would start working.
If all these options fail, run Command Prompt (CMD) as administrator (search through Windows Explorer). Type sfc /scannow. Wait for the process to complete then restart your computer.
