@Walzeem 

We need to know details about what is happening when you try to use the Start Menu.

 

We also need to know what version of Windows 10 you are running.  If you don't know that, enter "winver" (without the quotes) in the Search area and report back what the window shows.

Hi Wlzeem,

I will be glad to help you with the issue you have with!

1. Launch the Task manager
Press the [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Del] keys on the keyboard at the same time, or right-click the Taskbar, and select Task Manager.

2. Run a new Windows task
When the Task manager window opens, click the More details option to expand it, then select Run new task from the File menu.

3. Run Windows PowerShell
When the Run new task dialog box opens, type PowerShell, tick the box for Create this task with administrative privileges, and click OK.

4. Run the System File Checker
Type sfc /scannow into the window and press the [Return] key. The scan may take some time and will end with one of three results. Windows did not find any integrity violations and Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and repaired them means there are now no corrupt files, but Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some (or all) of them indicates a problem.

If the solution does not resolve the issue , Please refer to the below link to move to the next solution.

It's not a Return key, it's the Enter key.

Wat is it illustrating 

HP Recommended

@Walzeem 

Hard to read the screen, text too small -- but the error indicates you did not enter the command properly.

 

The command is "sfc /scannow" (space after the "sfc").  The screen error looks like you entered "sfc/scannow".

@Walzeem 

We're not equipped here to diagnose and repair Windows system errors -- those are the purview of Microsoft.

 

Here is a thread from the community Win10 forums about using DISM to make repairs:  (9) Run SFC Command in Windows 10 | Tutorials (tenforums.com)

 

Perhaps there is something in that thread that will help.

 

Good Luck
