I have Windows 10 pro x64. 16gb ddr4 and an i7 5820k.
For the past week or 2 I havent been able to open my start menu, my volume control or the the notification center. But if I push
windows key + e, the file explorer opens, I can change my volume with my keyboard button, I can right click on the volume button and open volume mixer to change all volumes, which is all part of windows explorer. So I dont understand whats wrong.
I've tried rebooting, I've tried
sfc /scannow, and that just says "Found issues unable to repair them" So I googled that and found a command to paste the errors to a text document. Idk how to format so here's the error.
The only issue listed is avast so I didnt think anything of it. Then another page I searched said "Avast and CCleaner may cause this issue." I had both installed, so I uninstalled both and rebooted. Still won't open.
Another page said any Overclock might screw it up so I reset my bios and got rid of all my overclock stuff even though I doubt thats the issue because it's still broken, and I've been overclocked for 3 months and had no issues until the past week or so.
Another page said booting into safemode will fix it. It didn't. I ran sfc scannow in safemode too and still got the error.
I have all the latest updates.
My account is an administrator.
Just found another issue. I use gyazo to take screenshots. The keyboard shortcut for that is
ctrl+shift+c but now that doesnt work anymore either when it used to work fine.
