    Hallo.I've installed the newest Windows 11 SW_DVD9_WIN_Pro_11_21H2.8_64BIT_Danish_Pro_ENT_EDU_N_MLF_X23-16490.ISO on a new Lenovo Thinkbook before sysprep - in the Audit mode.It works as it should, when just doing the Windows 11 install. However when I update Windows Update to get the latest patches and update the drivers, I can't use the Start button anymore afterwards neither by the windows key, nor by clicking with the mouse.When clicking on this button, I see a very brief "waiting-icon", which quickly disappears in a splitsecond each time trying.Going through different solutions on

    Windows doesn`t start. Authomatic repair doesn`t work.

    Thanks again!!

    I`m sorry I had not noticed that the text on the picture was in spanish. It says that windows has replaced some damaged clusters in "name" file and "directory". Then, at the end "an unspecified error occurred (75736e6a726e6c2e 4f6)".

    I`ll do it and I`ll be updating this thread when I have the report.

    I ran SeaTools. These are the results:

  3. Startmenu not "updating"

    Hey,

    I got the following problem:

    • Newly installed Programs/Apps will not show up in the startmenu
    • Programs/Shortcuts I add to the Startmenu folders want show in my startmenu
    • Startmenu search won't find the new items either, even not if they are pinned to the startmenu

    What I have tried to fix my problem:

    • Rebuilding my search index
    • Reinstalling all windows apps, including cortana
    • Try to locate the issue with the System File Checker (sfc /scannow) ⇒ nothing found
    • Running the troubleshooter ⇒ returns "incorrect permissions on Windows Search directoriers"
      • changed the default Search folder where the index is saved
      • checked permissions for the Search folder (seems ok)

    What I think initially caused the error:

    • I switched from German to English on my Win10 PC
      • I then realised that a lot of my searchable windows settings still showed inGerman and not in English and were in addition not clickable anymore (nothing happended)
      • I could not fix the issue so I switched back to German
      • This made the Win10 settings searchable and clickable again, but since then my Startmenu seems to be stuck on its old index
    I am running Windows 10 Education with the Anniversary Update - which for me removed Cortana (maybe this issue is connected?)

    Any help or advise?

    Why Edge doesn´t open any Google www-sites?

    Why Edge doesn´t open any Google www-sites? I am able to open the same Google-sites with any other browsers.
