    Start menu not appearing after update + Explorer not starting


    I'm on Win 10 Pro-64 bits (10.0, Build 17134)

    A few months ago, my Explorer (i.e. desktop) stopped starting automatically when booting Windows. I tried all I could find on the Web to fix, but I gave up as nothing proposed worked. So when I log in, I manually start the Task Manager and "Run" Explorer manually. Life sucks.

    Yesterday, there was an update installed. Since then, more problems...

    The Start Menu does not appear when I press the Windows icon, nor does it appear if I press the Windows Key. Nor does the Time/Calendar appear if I click on it.

    I found a Start Menu test application created by Microsoft and ran that and it reports:
    "Required application not installed correctly - NOT Fixed"
    "Tile DataBase is corrupt - NOT Fixed"

    Seems to me the system is more and more troubled... (read Jammed!)

    Any magical suggestions on how to fix these issues?
    THANKS!!



    :)
