Anyone has experienced a problem with windows 10 where you can't open programs or click on the cortana box? Is weird, like, the desktop is all glitched, left click doesnt work on pinned icons in taskbar, also sometimes when I'm in game (left 4 dead 2) the audio goes, I have then to restart the computer to get it working again.

 

This has started happening since I updated from windows 8.1 to windows 10. I then got my laptop with windows 10 and downloaded the same game (gunbound) as my other computer, since then my laptop had the same problem as my desktop pc. I think is a compatibility issue since when I tried to restore and scanned for damaged programs in the list appeared the game.

 

 

So, regardless if you understood my problem as English is not my primary language, my question is: can a program that is not compatible with your OS cause glitches in the desktop such as left clicking an icon in the taskbar and nothing happenin? Also, when I turn off the pc during this glitch it doesnt shut off, it just goes black screen. I have to force shut down, thanks.

There's many things that can cause this.

 

Start with this:

 

Then please run the following DISM commands to see if there's any problems with the system (from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt).  Press Enter after each one:

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

FYI - I have repaired systems using the last command even though problems weren't found with the first 2 - so I suggest running them all.

From this article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh824869.aspx

You can also run sfc.exe /scannow from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt to check for further corruption.

 

 

Also, try this:

 

Otherwise this tends to look similar to many other problems that we've seen with W10 being installed on well-used systems.

There's a couple of things to try:
[s]1)  This step deleted as it causes problems with recent versions.

2)  Uninstall your antivirus, then use the removal tool for it (there's a list of most of them here:  http://www.carrona.org/avuninst.html ), then install a freshly downloaded, W10 compatible version.  Some A/V have difficulties with the upgrade, so removing them and then reinstalling them will help how they run.

3)  Download fresh copies of the latest, W10 compatible audio and video drivers for your system.  Then uninstall the current versions from your system.  Then install the freshly downloaded versions.

4)  Get ALL available Windows Updates

5)  Get ALL available, W10 compatible drivers/programs from the manufacturer's website.  If some aren't compatible w/W10, check here about uninstalling them.

6)  Get ALL available, W10 compatible drivers/programs for any add-on hardware and any software that you installed previously.  If they aren't compatible, please uninstall them.

If this doesn't fix things, then post back so we can discuss the following options:
- continuing to attempt to fix this copy of the OS
- Reset of the OS (considering both the "Keep My Files" and the "Remove Everything" options)
- revert to the previous OS (both at less than 30 days, and at more than 30 days since initial update)
- revert to the previous OS with another attempt at installing W10 (I don't recommend this)
- clean install of the previous OS
- clean install of the previous OS, then update to W10 (only needed if a clean install of W10 fails)
- W10 clean install

 

Finally, try the RESET option using "Keep My Files" and see if that fixes things.
If not, post back and we'll discuss other options.
