Hello everyone!

 

So yesterday a bunch of different parts of the Windows UI randomly stopped working (Start menu, action center, volume control, battery indicator, wifi information), and I'm not sure why.

 

Previously I've had a problem with this and Avast!, but I uninstalled Avast! and the problem still occurs. I have tried a few other suggestions I found from googling, but none have worked. These are the things I tried:

  • Uninstalling Avast!
  • Just restarting my computer
  • Fully shutting down computer and turning on again
  • sfc /scannow
  • Powershell script to reinstall apps

None of these have worked, and so I'm looking for someone else who might be able to help

 

Thanks in advance!

Only one correct answer exist to this case - the registry is damaged.
Restore it.

You can repair install Windows 10 without losing your personal files, settings and third party installed programs.

FreeBooter, would your solution leave the activation information intact? My laptop came with Windows preinstalled so I don't have a license key for a reinstallation.

Repair install does not cause reactivation.

Hello again everyone!

 

For anyone else who may come along this post, I was able to solve my problem just by doing a system restore and no repair install was needed.
