    Start Menu/Search/Action Center not working. Unable to load DCOM Servr


    Hello guys!
    I got an issue that I used a registry cleaner then the News store app stopped working so I used the get-appx Powershell command to try to fix it then start menu (ShellExperienceHost & Cortana) stopped working.

    What I tried so far
    • In-place upgrade didn't work
    • sfc /scannow didn't find any corruption
    • DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth No corruption detected
    • DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth Command runned but didn't fix anything
    • Uninstalled Anti-Virus
    • Get-AppxPackage -AllUsers| Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”} Didn't work

    Now I got these errors in Event Viewer for the apps:
    • Unable to start a DCOM Server: Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_1.12.2.18334_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy!CortanaUI as Unavailable/Unavailable. The error:"2147958031"Happened while starting this command:"C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy\SearchUI.exe" -ServerName:CortanaUI.AppXa50dqqa5gqv4a428c9y1jjw7m3btvepj.mca



    • Unable to start a DCOM Server: Microsoft.Windows.StartMenuExperienceHost_10.0.18334.1_neutral_neutral_cw5n1h2txyewy!App as Unavailable/Unavailable. The error:"2147958031"Happened while starting this command:"C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.Windows.StartMenuExperienceHost_cw5n1h2txyewy\StartMenuExpe rienceHost.exe" -ServerName:App.AppXywbrabmsek0gm3tkwpr5kwzbs55tkqay.mca (Event ID: 10001)

    Please tell me of any possible solutions other than clean install because I want clean install to be my last resort as I have a lot of apps/programs installed in the system!

    Thanks!

    Regards,


    :)
