WIndows 10

After Windows 10 upgrade I keep getting "this menu isn't working. We'll try to fix it next time you sign in" every time I click start menu and does not fix on signing in again or restart.
Few fixes I tried was disabling cortana from registry and it still does not work

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Did you upgrade all your drivers and BIOS?  Be sure to do this.

Then run DISM (heavy duty repair tool):

Open cmd.exe with Run as Administrator.
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Scanhealth (takes 15 - 20 minutes).  <-- Verification step.
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Restorehealth (takes 15 - 20 minutes).
Restart the computer and test.
Make sure you install/upgrade the VMware Tools.

Personally I'd just reinstall W10 from scratch. It is simple and fast.
You upgraded the host OS or guest OS to W10?

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Try another user profile - can that other user reproduce the problem? No? Then it is no system file corruption and we can skip the repairing.

create new user account does not respond. This is what I tried first to try to test it.

I tried both -

DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Scanhealth (takes 15 - 20 minutes).  <-- Verification step.
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /Restorehealth (takes 15 - 20 minutes).
Restart the computer and test.

Same issue persists

You can try the Media Creation link, try to install Windows 10 again and choose the setting to keep applications and data. That may repair the problem.
The creation of a new can be done like this:
Right click c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe, select "run as administrator". Cmd opens, now enter the command
Net user newusername password
(set something instead of "password").
Now logon with that user.
