Start Button and Action Center not working

HP Notebook
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have noticed that the start button (bottom left) has stopped showing anything when I hover over it, same as the action center. I cant even get the action center to open up.  Also when I right click on the start button (bottom left) I only get a limited number of options. WHat can I do to fix this? I tried contacting HP Tech Support and they were no help what so ever! Total waste of my time! Thanks in advance!

By not identifying your HP notebook you are not helping either one of us. Post the product number or the complete product name in your next response.

 

Are you using some internet protection software?

 

Did this happen after some event, such as clicking on a mail from someone you don't know or a website button?

 

I suggest using System Restore and selecting a system checkpoint dated before the issues began.

 

Are you familiar with the system restore utility that is part of Windows?

 

If you are not, then perhaps you should consider using the USB recovery media that you should have created by now.

 

You can use it to return you PC to the state it was in when it was delivered to you.

 

Another option is to use Reset.

the product number for my Notebook is: N0T73UA#ABL.

 

The problem seems to have started after I installed updates to the computer.  I'm not sure how to even go about doing the recovery or reset, as I haven't even had this computer 3 months yet.
