Windows 10 start menu broken.

So last night, I noticed I couldn't open my start menu, at all.  I can right click and get some options, other than that, I can't do anything.

 

I downloaded the start menu tool from microsoft:

Required applications are not installed correctly.

Required applications are not installed correctly.

"Microsoft.Windows.ShellExperienceHost" and "Microsoft.Windows.Cortana" applications need to be installed correctly.

 

 

I click fix, it doesn't do anything. It says it's fixing it for about half an hour and nothing. 

 

sfc /scannnow is running again,  i tried last night and it didn't show anything.

 

If I right click on the start menu some things opens,  other things like settings, do not.  So I cannot even go into the settings to do a restore.

Try this, log out of your account and log back in. Check if it works. My desktop did this recently and its super random but if i log off and log back on, it works. Ive yet to run the tool after doing that, ill give that a try this weekend.
