    Start menu problem


    Hey,

    I have a problem whit my new computer on windows 8. Today I turned on the computer, I login, but then, the start menu app's doesn't work anymore! When I wan't to open skype it doesn't work, when I click on desktop it doesn't open.. I need to click on the windows button every time.
    I clicked on the windows button, then the app to go to the desktop was clickable, when I was on the desktop, the start menu doesn't appear if I go whit my mouse left under. If I go whit my mouse right, that menu also doesn't appear. Also some programs doesn't open anymore automaticly..

    //edit:
    The button for the music also doesn't work, I can't turn of the music etc..

    What can I do now, I need some help!
    Regards,

    Use this tutorial and try turning live tile updating off and on (restart in between): Apps - Turn Live Tiles On or Off in Windows 8.Using this procedure may shock your tiles into working--and then again, maybe not. Post back after trying; other fixes possible.
