  • Hi,

     

    Please navigate to %appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu folder and verify if Programs folder presents. If the folder is empty, try to restore Start Menu folder from Previous Versions.

     

    Meanwhile, please use ShellExView to check third party confliction.

     

    1.     Download ShellExView v1.41 from the following link http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/shexview.zip

     

    Please Note: The third-party product discussed here is manufactured by a company that is independent of Microsoft. We make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding this product's performance or reliability.

     

    2.     Right-click the "shexview.zip" file, select "Extract All", the Extraction Wizard will prompt.

    3.     Click Next, input "C:\ShellExView" (without the quotation marks) in the "Files will be extracted to this directory" textbox.

    4.     Click Next and click Finnish.

    5.     Open the "C:\ShellExView" folder and double-click the "shexview.exe" file. It will scan the registry for all the shell extensions.

    6.     Select all the non-Microsoft extensions in pink by press "Ctrl" in the keyboard.

    7.     Click the "Disable Selected Items" on the toolbar and click Yes.

    8.     Restart your computer and check if the issue is resolved.

    9.     If the issue persists, test the issue in clean boot.

     

    You can also create a new user account to check the result.

     

    Best Regards,

    Niki
