Hello, I am having an issue with my Start button, and taskbar in general. I recently upgraded to Windows 10, and when I first boot up, everything is fine. I can use the Start button, the search bar, and everything else in the taskbar. However, if I put it in Sleep Mode, and wake it back up, The Start button and search bar do not function, and I can't right click on any icons on the task bar. 

I've tried many of the fixes posted around the Internet and this site, but nothing seems to work. Only restarting the computer brings back the functionality, until of course I put it in Sleep again. 

Some things I've tried include running powershell and typing in this command: 
 

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml”}

I've tried restarting the Application Identity service, which did nothing. 

Iv'e also tried this command in the Command Prompt (Admin) : 
 

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

I can't seem to fix the issue without rebooting. I can still use the computer while the Start button isn't working, but accessing certain things becomes somewhat of a nuisance. Any help would be appreciated.

There is nothing to repair. You must do a clean install now. That's the only way.
It means, wipe whole partition, then reformat and instal new clean Windows from DVD or USB. 
Before You begin wipe, move documents, pictures and important downloads to some other place. For example, make one other partion for them, if You already don't have.

I followed the instructions on both links (since I wasn't sure what the problem was), and I also updated my drivers, the ones that needed updated anyway. The problem hasn't reoccurred since, so something appears to have done the trick. Thanks, everyone!
