I have searched high and low on the internet and have not found a solution for this. Hope someone here can help me.
The Windows 8 start menu becomes unresponsive randomly. Clicking on any application will show the "click" animation but not launch the application.
Even clicking on "desktop" on the start menu doesn't work! Also clicking in the bottom left hand corner for "start" doesn't work either! App switching (top left hand corner and moving cursor down) doesn't work either!
This is very frustrating as pretty much nothing works until such time the start menu decides to respond again. Sometimes this can be a long time sometimes the problem goes away quickly. Regardless this is just terrible as it makes Windows 8 horrible to use, unpredictable and frustrating.
I like Windows 8, have a windows phone 8 but I need to fix this as it happens quite often but not repeatable in the sense that if I do certain things in a specific sequence will it happen. Sometimes it can happen on boot.
Watch the video below for a demonstration.
