    "Critical Error" message


    About 20 times now, I get this when I click on Windows Icon or in Search box (no "X" close exists):


    "Critical Error

    Your Start menu isn't working. We'll try to fix it the next time you sign in.

    Button: Sign out now"


    Usually the Button click does NOT resolve the issue. The box reappears.

    If I run a FULL scan which takes an hour, it does not recur for ONE opening, but the next time I turn on PC, it's back.


    1. How did I get it?

    2. How do stop this from happening once and for all?


    I do not use Microsoft Edge.


    Thank you

    :)
