Windows 10 Start Menu Critical Error – Fixed

This was a weird one for Windows 10 v1903:


Critical Error: Your Start menu isn’t working. We’ll try to fix it the next time you sign in.

Well, the user goes to log on and sure enough, the same thing happens again.

We tried all manner of fix short of an over the top re-install of the Windows 10 operating system as that was too risky and doing a fresh install was out of the question.

So, they limped along using Cortana’s search to get to any apps they needed that were not pinned to their Taskbar or on their Desktop.

Update KB4522355 for Windows 10 1903 was installed today and happily the problem was addressed.

The user is now able to click on their Start menu!
