    Ever since 10130 came out I've had this problem where you simply cant access the start menu or Cortana. Running edge or the store returns with an error from explorer.exe claiming that it's an invalid value for the registry. Looking in other places, I found a solution involving powershell. In simplicity, that did not help at all. Anything that can put me back to normal would be a godsend.

    Start, taskbar and all Windows 10 apps crash and restart when I turn on my PC.

    Start menu, taskbar, Cortana and all windows 10 metro apps(and MS Edge too) crash and restart after two minutes of starting my PC.

    Start menu and Apps with Metro are not working - Windows 10 FInal

    Hey guys...

    Recently I upgrade my PC windows 8.1 for windows 10.

    After join in Domain, start menu and all apps with metro (clock, calculator e etc) stopped work.

    I removed the machine from Domain
    and still does not. I did a clean installation
    and it was the same problem.

    I checked my GPOs and found nothing!!

    Please suggest me a solution

    Not sure about Cortana, but for the start issue, this is what I finally tracked down
    Get into settings, you can get there with the Windows Key and I, Select personalization. Select Start. Select "Store and display recently opened programs in start" off. If it is already Off, try and put it on, check start, and then off again.
    It might also trigger Cortana and/or the store..

    didn't work out for me I'm afraid. I assume this will be fixed in the next build but said build is taking an unusually longer time to release. or I'm getting impatient. Damn I wish I knew what was up.

    OK. Well, just another try. (This did not work for me) . Disable search in the task manager. It will reactivate again and has been known to solve your problem.
