I installed March 14, 2017—KB4013429 (OS Build 14393.953) and KB4013418  after reboot I was unable to view apps in Windows start menu.  I was able to uninstall KB4013429 and after reboot, I was able to view app in the start menu but they were all labeled as new and non of the tiles appeared and system icon did not appear at the lower bottom left of start menu.  I attempted to uninstall KB4013418 but would not let me.

Any comments or anyone else have this problem

After doing some thorough testing with the Windows 10 start menu bricking and Windows apps not launching, I have found the root cause of the issue and a solution, in my situation:

 

The cause of the start menu bricking and Windows Apps crashing is from the Intel HD 530 driver version 21.20.16.4590.  This driver date is 1/18/2017 and was installed through Windows Updates.  I can confirm this, because the issue started to occur after I installed Windows Updates on 2/17/2017 (one month ago, today!).

 

The solution to the issue is to roll back a driver, which will install version 21.20.16.4526.  Then update the driver back to version 21.20.16.4590 in Device Manager, which will pull the driver from Windows Updates.


I tested this solution on three Dell Precision 3420 Towers and so far the start menu is in tact.

Check your video card driver and roll back a driver or else update the driver from the manufacturer's website.

Dear EDullum:

I've already tried rolling back the driver. I've uninstalled etc. No luck.

This is a bigger issue. More and more complaints are turning up in different forums now about this issue.

Thanks for your input. Have a great week.

Peter
