The other day I realized I had some "Start Menu Updated" pop-up virus and decided to get rid of it.  I read something about the program called "Pokki" causing it and decided to delete it (especially because I don't remember ever downloading it).  In the process of deleting Pokki from my "Add and Remove Programs" menu, I think also deleted something called "Start Menu" which I thought was also part of the problem.


Anyway, after deleting those things and running Malwarebytes, I restarted my computer and now when I click on my "Start Menu" taskbar button, nothing happens.  I've been using "Windows key + X" since.  Does anyone know how I can get my Start Menu back?


Thanks for the time--any help is greatly appreciated.



Edit:  I also system restored back a week, and it still didn't work.
