Hello everyone. A few days ago I upgraded to Windows 10 and the installation went smoothly. I played around with it for awhile and really liked it, however, when I booted up my PC the next day, my taskbar was completely unresponsive. I can't open my start menu or click on any of the icons (I can't even open the Personalize or Display Settings from right clicking on my desktop). Before upgrading I never faced this issue on Windows 7 and it's really hurting my overall enjoyment of Windows 10.

So far I have tried:

Restarting Windows Explorer

sfc /scannow

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

Booting into safe mode (Taskbar works in safe mode and when I restart normally after being in safe mode, it still works. It only stops working when I restart again)

Updating my video card drivers

I have searched the internet for days and I can't fix this issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That suggests it is not solely a problem with the Taskbar. Do you have any icons on the Desktop you can right-click and get a small menu?

Yes, I'm able to open the little menu and interact with the icons.
