I am currently unable to open the Start menu on my HP Pavilion 15 laptop after Preview Build 25179 failed. Cortana/search feature doesn't work and none of the Windows Settings will open.
I just finished a LONG Microsoft Support chat session with NO Resolution as NOTHING that was tried (multiple reboots, sfc /scannow, creating a new Windows profile, etc) has worked.
i suspect My laptop now has corrupted system files with no way besides a full "clean" install to correct the issue.
This reminds me of Windows 10 Build 17017 which was also "corrupt" and which bricked an earlier laptop of mine.
I am a Tier 1 tech support agent for a US govt agency so i am NO "newbie' to computers or Windows
Does anyone in the Insider Program have any good VERIFIED" "working" suggestions" to get this fixed?
i can't even get to the Windows Troubleshooters.
