  1. My Start Menu randomly broke in one user account only, but Search still works


    One day I just logged onto my perfectly normal user account, like nothing was wrong, and the Start Menu just wouldn't load. It kept giving me that "Critical error, we'll try to fix it the next time you sign in." For some reason, the Start Menu works fine on other user accounts, and oddly enough Search still works. I tried sfc /scannow, and no problems were detected. I've done nothing to change things, and it just started breaking out of the blue. How can I fix my profile? I don't want to create a new user, I have a lot of stuff on there so it'll be a pain.
