We’ve covered Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB4524147 which aims to fix Print issues, hasn’t resolved them but broke the Start Menu by showing Critical Error for some, while the Patch Tuesday Update KB4517389 released on October 8, 2019, has resolved the printer issues but not that of Start Menu for the previously affected. Microsoft employee today acknowledged on Answers forum that they’re aware of the issue and looking to release fix by the end of this month.
Both Cumulative Updates released for October month have caused the Windows 10 Start Menu to break. When some users tried to launch Start, they’ve received a Critical Error saying ” Your Start Menu isn’t working. We’ll try to fix it the next time you sign in”.
A user reported on Answers forum by saying KB4524147 caused printing and Start Menu errors to him, but the problems are resolved when he uninstalled the update. The user claims when he installed the KB4517389 update the Printer worked, but Start Menu again gave him the error. On the forum thread, 190 users have claimed they too have the same question.
Today, Microsoft Employee, Paulsey acknowledged the Start Menu issue by saying “We are aware of this issue and estimate a solution to be released in late October.”
