Problems after reset

I've got a problem since resetting my laptop. I've recently updated the Creators Update version of Windows 10. My computer was going slow (which it was doing BEFORE the update) so I thought a reset might help. Which it did. BUT the Start Menu isn't working properly, neither is the Region / International settings.
 
The Start Menu doesn't add any new apps when they are installed, and I'm thinking there's probably some stuff missing!
The calendar (bottom right) doesn't work, and it won't save any Region settings.
 
I've had a look at the registry, and International appears to have a permission issue.
I don't know what to do about the Start Menu.
 
What should I do?

Open Command Prompt as a administrator by pressing  win + X, and then press A letter key.
Within Command Prompt type Powershell command and press Enter key.
Execute below command and press Enter key.
 

Get-AppxPackage AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml}

This tells Windows to install those default apps again. Give it some time and allow it to finish, even if nothing appears to happen at first. Even if you see an error message, restart and examine Cortana and Mail app you may just have all those default apps back again, anyway.

Thanks for that. Didn't do anything though.

 

I'm not sure I've explained the problem properly: the apps ARE installed, they just aren't showing on the Start Menu.

 

I'm also convinced the problem with the calendar and the languages etc is to do with the permissions on the International registry key. It currently just shows "access is denied"

Can you give me the registry path to International registry key.

I would like you to check the system integrity of your Windows OS installation.

  • Please right click the Windows logo (formerly the start button) at the bottom left of your screen.
  • Please select  "Command Prompt (Admin)"
  • Please type the following command and press the <Enter> key: sfc /scannow  (Please note that there is a space between 'sfc" and "/scannow".)
  • It should take about 20 minutes to run, if there are no serious errors.
  • If the System File Checker reports that some errors were fixed, but some remain; please reboot your computer and run the System File Checker from an Administrator Command Prompt, again.
  • If the System File Checker again reports that some errors were fixed, but some remain, please reboot your computer and run it a third time.
  • If "Resource Integrity Violations" (errors) are reported that could not be corrected, or were not corrected after a third SFC run, then please navigate to the folder: C:\Windows\Logs\CBS and copy the file "cbs.log" to your desktop immediately.  I am asking you do that because that file is dynamic, so I want to be able to examine a copy that is unchanged from the time that the System File Checker was run.
  • If there are errors that couldn't be corrected, let me know and I will provide you with instructions as to how to upload the file
