    Windows 8 freezing while personalizing start menu


    Exactly what the title says. When I try to change the background image or the colors on the start menu (specifically, the moment I click on a different color or background), the start menu freezes for a minute or so. I can't go back to desktop, nothing's responding when I click on anything. When I'm not changing the colors or background image, the Start menu works fine.

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    then restarting,

    sfc /scannow

    all in admin cmd prompts, MAY help.

    It's worth trying.
