  3. Windows 10 Critical error for start menu

    Hi Mark,

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you by Windows 10 Critical error for start menu.

    Some customers have reported that adding a new local administrator account has resolved their Critical Error. If that doesn’t work, try removing the original administrator account now that you have a new one created.

    Refer: create a local user account in Windows 10

    You may also, create a new user account with different Microsoft account and check if it helps.

    If you have already logged in with a Microsoft account, I suggest you to covert that Microsoft account into local account. Later login using newly created local account to create a different Microsoft account.

    Step 1: To convert the account, you can do the following:

    • Sign in to your Microsoft account on Windows 10.
    • Click Start and then PC settings.
    • Click Users and accounts and under Your Profile click Disconnect on the right of the screen.
    • Enter your Microsoft account's password, and click on Next.
    • Type in a Username, Password, and Password Hint that you want set for your Local account and click
      Next. Click on Sign out and Finish button.

    Step 2: Create new Microsoft account

    Refer: Sign in with a Microsoft account

    Also, see:
