Windows 10 Start Button Frozen RRS feed

  • Question

  • After installation of Windows 10, all seemed to be working. A few days later, Start button is freezing and I get the Critical Error message which is useless because nothing changes when I sign out and restart as dirrected by the Critical Error message.  In fact, it seems that all of my task bar is frozen.  Clock is working, but clicking on calendar does nothing to show months. Sound can't be clicked on to adjust it in and out of mute.  I'm very tempted to return to Windows 7.  Can someone help?
