    I upgraded my windows 8.1 to windows 10 on the 01/08/15.
    The issues I have are:-

    Have a start menu but will not open
    Windows edge will not open
    No Cortana
    Cannot add another user

    What I have tried to date are:-

    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /source:WIM:C:\Sources\Install.wim:1 /LimitAccess


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

    Get an error with this Get-AppXPackage not recognized.

    sfc /scannow

    Get-appxpackage -all *shellexperience* -packagetype bundle |% {add-appxpackage -register -disabledevelopmentmode ($_.installlocation + “\appxmetadata\appxbundlemanifest.xml”)}

    Do any of you guys know of any think else I can try? Also I f I roll back to windows 8.1 can I still come back to windows 10 in say 6 moths time?

    Upgrades seem to have been hit or miss - but it's always been a ropey thing with Windows. With Win 10, you have to upgrade to get the freebie, but after this you can then do a clean install.

    Download the media creation tool http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows-10/media-creation-tool-install

    Make a USB or DVD with that, backup your user folder data to another drive (and anything like steamapps), then run a fresh install. When asked for a key use either of these generic keys

    Win 10 Home TX9XD-98N7V-6WMQ6-BX7FG-H8Q99

    Win 10 Pro VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T

    Then, when you activate, as long as your hardware was already activated in the upgrade, it will still activate now from the clean install.

    And everything should be working great. It's always been a rule with Windows, try to avoid Upgrade installations, but unfortunately at the moment the Win 10 offer has been forcing this method, but at least you can do the clean install after doing an upgrade.
