So I updated to Windows 10 Anniversary yesterday using the Windows Update Assistant, and when my computer restarted I had issues doing anything with my files, so I claimed ownership of my entire C drive, and gave full access to my user account...

Now I can't use the start menu, Edge, Calculator, Store, or any apps. I have 1 program I need to remove that I can't. Explorer works fine, as does the taskbar, task manager, and all other features, but I can't use the start menu or the other programs!

I've run the Start Menu Repair from Microsoft, but it gives me the following errors:

I've tried the following help: http://home.bt.com/tech-gadgets/comp...11364000314532 but after a heap of red text and restarting I'm still having no luck.

Short of doing a PC Refresh which I really don't want to do, any suggestions anyone can give me please?

TIA
