    Question Some Windows 10 functions not working

    I have for about a week ago encountered a problem where I can't open the start menu, quick search and that "message" thingy. Functions like "update", "settings" and so on are not working either. In general just the functions that have the Windows 10 design to them. All other functions work like they used to.

    The problem occured after I restored the system (System Restore) due to me installing a wrong driver for my sound card.

    It is really annoying, as I don't even have the Windows Update function, so if an update comes, which fixes this problem, I can't even get it.
    Has anyone had this problem before, is it just me or do any of you have a solution?

    Method 1
    I would suggest you to check if you are able to access Windows Update services and also make sure that the following services are started. If it is not started follow the below mentioned steps:
    a. Press Windows key + R, type "services.msc" (without quotes) in start run box and press Enter.
    b. Locate Windows Update service.
    c. Right click on the Windows Update service and select Properties.
    d. In Start-up type, select Enable.
    e. Click Start under Service status.
    f. Click OK.
    g. Repeat the steps c to f for the following services also:
    Background Intelligent Transfer Service & Cryptographic Service.
    If these steps do not help to resolve the issue, then you may proceed with the step mentioned below and check.

    Method 2
    Step by step instructions to get the issue fixed.
    a) Press Windows key + X and select Command Prompt (Admin).
    b) On the open Command Prompt window copy and paste the commands (all at once)
    net stop wuauserv
    net stop cryptSvc
    net stop bits
    net stop msiserver
    ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old
    ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 catroot2.old
    net start wuauserv
    net start cryptSvc
    net start bits
    net start msiserver
    c) Wait for the process to complete.
    d) Close the Command Prompt.

    Now, try to install Windows Updates again and check if it helps.
