My Windows is stuck.

  1. Win 10 - the wee window logo in the bottom-left doesn't launch the menu as it did.

    Nothing happens. Any ideas, please?

    (A right-click on it brings up the menu with 'Progs and features', 'Power options' etc etc, but not the usual Program/App etc menu.)

    Prob down to moisture causing swelling of the main frame. A good thwack with a hammer and crowbar should sort it :rolleyes:
  3. 'Restarted' and it's ok again.

    Phew - puts crowbar down...

    I suspect its due to too much window licking.

    If it does it again it try making sure your windows is fully updated. If it comes back again do a scan file system.

    Pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ESC

    At top of next window you should see File>Run new task click this then in new create new task box type CMD

    A new window will now appear with a cursor flashing next to c: \windows\system32>

    Type in the following command;

    sfc /scannow

    and press enter.

    Windows will now run a scan on your file system and let you know whether it discovers any discrepancies.
