    Hi, I upgraded a W7ent machine to W10 enterprise.
    I found the same problem, the Display setting won't work, and also the Personalization don't work.
    If I need to change something I must go to the old Control Panel and from there is possible to get sone settings.

    Someone know the solution??

    I'm having the same problem after upgrading from 8.1 - my main account works absolutely fine but I have tried to add my wife's microsoft account and I get those errors and also cannot click the start menu or search button. Also cannot verify the account - almost as if the second user hasn't been set up fully??

    I also have this problem, when I try to load settings from start menu, the screen flashes but nothing happens, also when I right on click on screen with mouse and click personization, nothing happen saying it needs to associate with a program, when I try this by going to control panel and click default credentials I cant find the program. I upgraded from 7 SP1 onto my Packard Bell desktop with AMD Athlon 2. Appreciate some help.

    Hey Guyz. I found a solution for settings and updates. Download this update 3081424. And download the utility Microsoft Troubleshooter and fix it. Download it from here http://aka.ms/diag_settings

    Hi quaiserajaz, I have tried your suggestion and download http://aka.ms/diag_settings and it seems to have solved my problem of not being able to access the settings and personalize either in the start menu and right click on desktop, many thanks for your assistance.

    Downloaded and ran the trouble shooter, it comes back and says it can find any problem, but I still get the error message "ms-settings:display". Any more suggestions on how to remedy this? How do you connect the shortcut back to the drop down menu when you right click on the desktop? The solution is reassociating the program to the display name. How do you do that?

    Turned on another machine that was upgraded to Windows10. It's been working perfectly since the upgrade. Guess what, get the same error when right clicking on the desktop to get to the display shortcut (ms-settings:display). All I did was turn the machine on. No upgrades, do browsing, nothing. There's definitely a problem with the upgrade to Windows 10. Microsoft needs to look into these problems and get them corrected.

    It works! Just upgraded from 8 to 10 and had exact problems. Ran the trouble shooter and 3 minutes later I could get to the settings. Didn't even have to reboot.

    Downloaded and ran the troubleshooter again and get the message, "troubleshooter cannot identify the problem". Waited 10 minutes before posting this reply. Still have the problem. Any other suggestions?
