  1. Start Menu Not Opening cannot get to Control panel or even Shut Down!!


    Since the latest 'Update' a little while ago, I cannot open the Start Menu or get to the Control Panel or even Shut the PC down and I've also lost all the Sound.

    Has anyone else had these Problems?

    Just before it all went wrong (Again!) I saw a flag about an 'Immersive Control Panel' which sounds like it could be the Problem?

    :)

  2. Windows 10 keeps shutting down my open programs

    Win10 forced shut down:

    Hi Deepika

    I tried doing what was mentioned in response to Michelle's question. Since I upgraded to Win10 I have a problem in that I cannot access my control panel no matter which way, even in safe mode. The moment I open Control Panel, the shut down execution is activated
    and within 3 seconds it shuts down. I also experience an icon "dip" very much the same as when you start Chrome, but this happens automatically every 60 seconds or so. I cannot seem to resolve this problem. Help!!!!

    Start Menu Not Opening cannot get to Control panel or even Shut Down!!

    Hi, fortunately I've had no problems with the smaller updates.
    Fixing that range of problems sounds as if you'll need either to:

    a. restore your most recent disk image (Do you use disk imaging? If you don't, you need to to preserve the state of your PC and restore it, and your sanity). (Aomei Backupper or Macrium Reflect - free + external storage medium + their boot CD/USB drive).
    - full backup
    - restore your PC to how it was in a defined time << an in-place upgrade (option b)
    - replace your HDD (larger, broken, faster..)

    or
    b. in place upgrade install (which allows you to keep everything bar subsequent windows updates).
    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums
    - it also leaves System Restore off, might break 1 or 2 associations, and might need you to set up WiFi again
    - needs Win 10 iso/install medium

    You could try system restore, of course, if you have it enabled, and any useful restore points.

    I'd suggestion you reinstall Windows 10.................................
    If you do not have the current Win 10 10586 ISO saved in your computer, use one of the following links and download the ISO file.:

    Media Creation Tool
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10

    Tech Bench
    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/softw...load/techbench

    If you already have one, right click at the iso file > click Mount > click Setup.exe.
    That will begin installing Windows 10.
    You have the choice of keeping settings, files and apps, or keeping nothing.
    No product key is required.
    Activation will be automatic.

  6. Hi I'm thinking of going back to Windows 7 or XP

    Everytime the thing goes wrong, I have to resort to that anyway to keep my Websites updated, it worked great when it first came out but as soon as they started updating it, its never been the same.
