    Dead Start Button

    My start button has stopped working. I can't get to any programs on the start menu. Only way to get to them is through My Computer. Any ideas on how to get it working again?

    From an administrator command prompt run the following:

    SFC /scannow

    That may work, or examine log file and find any bad files. Replace with files from another pc.
