Following a recent automatic Windows 10 update, my start menu and task bar items have been behaving strangely, preventing me from being able to perform several critical operations. For example:
1) When I click the power icon in the start menu, the sleep/hibernate/restart/shutdown option list pops up for a fraction of a second, then disappears.
2) The same thing happens when I click on the wireless network icon after clicking the hidden icons icon on the taskbar. The list of available networks flashes briefly, then disappears, preventing me from selecting new wireless networks.
3) I find that I must click on start menu tile items multiple times before they ultimately "take" and launch the associated application.

I have tried a number of different solutions I have found online, including rolling back recent updates, without success.

Does anyone know of a solution to this problem that will WORK?
