*** Some people report that the fix works, but their WiFi stops working after the fix; if this happens right-click on the Start button, click on Device Manager, under Network Adapters find your WiFi device; right-click on the device and choose uninstall; after it is gone from the list, go to the Action menu at the top of the Device Manager window and click on Scan for Hardware Changes; when the device is back in the Network Adapters list, try your Internet again (you may have to reboot); Let me know in the comments if this works for you! ***


Here is the powershell command:

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

Here is a link to the batch file:

Icons not showing, software not starting, not loading, not running!

May happen in: Windows 10 Build 10586, 10525, and more.

May occur after Windows Update runs.

If the above does not help, create a new user, make the user an administrator, and transfer your files to the new account.
