On my wife's AIO (Dell Inspiron One 2330) the Start menu wasn't available on her non-admin user account(but was ok on my admin user account).

 

My XPS8100 wouldn't awaken from sleep properly (labored without real progress).

 

I reinstalled Win10 on both PCs last night (about two hours each) and all is well. Here's the link:

 

https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10

 

Use the Download Tool Now button and follow the simple instructions.

 

BTW, I'm now Alan in Sarasota.

Yes.  That is the official site to download Windows 10.  Glad you solved your problem.

Wouldn't it have just been easier to just "reset" your computers back to new by using the built in "reset" feature? You should have been able to reset your computers in under an hour each. Either way accomplishes EXACTLY the same thing, but the built in feature is a lot quicker.

Thanks for pointing this out.
