    Since someone in my school deleted some virus files and cleaned up my PC a little (HP Notebook, Windows 10) I have been unable to start the Windows Start menu. The button on my keyboard is not working and if I click it nothing happens. I am able to click on the explorer and chrome on my taskbar though. The icons on the right aren't responding either; brightness, volume, wifi, notifications. I've tried many things including restarting explorer, use Powershell like one site recommended but nothing worked. I could reset my PC to factory settings but I really want to know if there's another solution because I don't want to lose certain software. If there is none that'll have to do. Thanks in advance!

    You will be fighting this much longer if you do not reset the OS.
