Hi everyone - I have Windows 10 and today the start menu is frozen and so is the toolbar.  It's not even updating the clock.  Help!!  I tried rebooting and I tried running sfc which wouldn't run.  I also tried doing the Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"} and that just nuked my shortcuts on my taskbar.

Can you try to reproduce the problem with other users? Create a new test user if you don't have other users.
