    Settings and Start Menu won't open!


    A couple days ago my computer started acting funky and the next day my settings would crash every time I would open it I have tried running the troubleshooters and all the commands in PowerShell and cmd but nothing seems to work. Also, my start menu won't open even if I do the command on the keyboard or click it on the computer, I have also run all the troubleshooters I've seen on the web and other threads from people with similar issues. I have tried to run a couple computer cleaners like CCleaner, Norton, and Advanced System Care 11 but that didnt help, I also updated all my drivers on my pc hoping that would help but it didn't. So please help me because I'm out of ideas.

    :)

    Win10 start menu won`t open (SOLUTION)

    To all people that suffer from same problems as I did:

    -Win 10`s start menu won`t open after restart

    -Win 10`s menu stops working after few days if your pc has been idle or just on.

    -Win 10`s menu works after AC power down

    -Win 10`s menu won`t work after restart unless you log out and relog through CTRL+ALT+DEL

    It took me 7 hours to find cause of this problem, lots program reinstallations and browsing through internet.

    Even Microsoft support didn`t provide the right answer for this problem, they just give you commands and advices to create new accounts, cleanup this, reinstall that, clean boot this, normal boot that. But what they don`t say is that all those problems are
    caused by their so called "feature" that released with their "Fall Creators Update". A feature that saves some data into the memory, so after restart it start`s to open all your chrome windows and other programs.

    CAUSE:

    Your windows might get some conflicts with some programms during the session, before the update if you shutdown/restart your pc, windows where just dumping all the data out of the window, after the update it started to save it to the memory (including all the
    conflicted data). THANK YOU MICROSOFT!

    SOLUTION:

    Go to your Search icon on the taskbar, type > Settings > Accounts > Sing-In options > Under "Privacy" uncheck/disable "Use my sing-in info to automatically setting up my device after an update or restart" > Restart

    Hope it helps folks!

    And ofcourse:

    Microsoft, you`ve already forced us into updates with Win10.

    Will you now please stop screwing up windows even more with your pointless system breaking features!

    Stop reinventing the wheel.

    Settings and Start Menu won't open!

    N97 Bluetooth disappeared, won´t start again

    Today without any reason the Bluetooth disappeared, and it won´t start anymore from the connections menu. Any clue where to start looking. Software V20, and no new update available.
