Hello!

 

I hit windows key, type what I am searching for, and when I right click it to run as admin, the right click menu opens and closes fast, I can't even click in it. It's not double clicking because I can right click anything else, anywhere else, with no issues.

 

Also, when I open the start menu and click an item, the start menu remains open instead of closing. I just did a fresh install due to ransomware.

 

I've turned off antivirus and malware protectors. 

 

I've made sure it's all up to date, drivers, windows, everything.

 

I've made sure table mode is off.

 

I also changed and edited items in the registry.

 

I've ran powershell sfc /scannow, DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth and DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth all came back fine

 

EDIT: I started in safe mode with networking and all services turned off, and it works fine. I also want to add that this is a fresh install. I had to use Samsung magician to wipe my nvme ssd, and then did a new windows install, after a ransomware issue.

 

EDIT 2: I also did the SSD optimization steps after the fresh install, that you can find by doing a search on google for "Optimizing SSD." Maybe that has something to do with it? However, before I had to install, those steps were also done and I didn't have the issue with the Start Menu.

Thank you. I get an error for each one.

 

Image 1 is for current user without elevation as instructed

 

Image 2 is for all users with elevation as instructed

 

EDIT: I re-ran the process after Killing Windows ShellExperience Host, and a blue banner across the top of powershell came up and went away with no errors! It does not resolve the issue though unfortunately.

Everything works in safe mode so something anti virus ,start up program could be interfering . Maybe uninstall anti virus completely could help. All I can think of now

It's possible a few reboots fixed it.
