Apparently, it’s not just an isolated issue with Windows 10.

I’m not sure if every edition of Windows 10 faces this problem, but for fact Windows 10 Pro suffers from it. After using Windows 10 for a while, certain things suddenly stop working, such as the Start Menu, Cortana, and perhaps a couple other things as well. I quickly went searching for a fix for this, and low and behold, there is a temporary fix for it.

However, I’ve not yet had the chance to try it out, but I am certain that I will by the weeks end. When the problem does arise again, I will certainly have a chance to test this out. To be honest, I am not a fan of publishing stuff without first testing it, so if you should download and use this, please report back whether it works or does not work for you. Please also understand that I did not develop this, I simply grabbed code from two sources and put them together to hopefully make everyone’s life easier.

# Self elevating code from

Please make sure you backed up your system prior to using this, as it could cause damage to your system. It has been executed without the need, and everything appears to be working without any issues or problems. You will also see “red messages” which according to, is nothing to worry about.
