    Start Menu / Action Centre notworking after update to 10074


    As the title says, some strange behaviour!

    In addition to the headline, it also seems to take a while to "recover" after exiting a full screen app (IE icons reappearing, volume icon etc)

    Do we think this is likely to be fixed in the near future via WU?

    :)

    Update KB4038788

    This update was automatically installed last week and since then I have been unable to access the Windows Start Menu or Action Centre. After searching for similar issues on this site I carried out all the advice
    that had been posted but with no luck.

    In my frustration I then decided to uninstall the update and to my sanity the Start Menu and Action Centre icons worked. Unfortunately the update automatically uploaded again overnight and both the Start Menu and Action Centre icons are no longer working.

    I read that KB40338788 was supposed to correct a problem with the Start Menu but I never had an issue until this update. Until this issue is resolved how can I stop automatic updates on my home PC?

    Regards,
