How to fix Windows 10 ‘Critical Error’

Windows 10 is Microsoft’s one of the best operating systems that created a lot of buzz with its release. However, there are many users who rushed to try it out but repent on their decision. After upgrading to Windows 10, they reported that they are encountering Windows 10 errors and a so-called Critical Error is one is the most discussed ones. This is the error that notifies the user about the inability of using the Start menu.

Start menu is the main center of performing operations in Windows 10.  The whole computer becomes almost blocked if it doesn’t launch. Every time when you try to reach the Start Menu, the error appears that says that Start menu (and sometimes Cortana) are not functioning and that this will be fixed when user signs in the next time.
