    Haven't had any issues, besides not being able to install any other browsers, might be something to do with VB.

    Just a thought, see if restarting explorer corrects the issue, better then rebooting if so.

    Windows Explorer - Restart explorer.exe in Windows 8

    or

    Explorer - Add "Restart Explorer" to Desktop Context Menu - Windows 7 Forums

    Not a fix, but a work around.

    I haven't had any hang-ups with the start button, but I do, often, have to "swish" (Sorry, can't think of a better word!) the mouse across the screen to the start button, (or the extreme bottom left corner, if the start button is not showing), to bring up the menu. It has already become a habit.
