hey,

i tried the newest version of winreducer 10 and after removing stuff nothing happens when clicking on the START button.

as i can tell till now a service is causing it (an service with the first letter V or W, im still testing)

as soon as i got it i will post more


EDIT:

is either windows firewall or windows update service

EDIT2:

so its clearly the windows firewall service thats causing it

so, removing all files winreducer removes when selecting windows firewall service and when removing this filesĀ  i can t start the startmenu (START button dont work)

del /q /f Windows\System32\MPSSVC.dll
del /q /f Windows\System32\de-DE\mpssvc.dll.mui
del /q /f Windows\System32\drivers\mpsdrv.sys

and after removing ONLY this file:
del /q /f Windows\System32\wfapigp.dll

i get a blackscreen during the installation (where the setup is configuring devices, but removing it together with all the other files and the blackscreen dont appear, so its save but i wanted to mention it)

BUT using winreducer to remove windows firewall service and putting those 3 files back i cant start the startmenu again.

so it is also a registry thing or related to the service itself

so; after removig

Remove - Modern UI Apps -> Cortana

the search isnt working at the taskbar


is that normal ? if no should i look what file is causing it ? ir should it be protected by the Windows Search preset ? (i used that preset and it Cortana was removed)

It's the same reason, that has been told you before...W10 isn't ready yet. Keep calm and stop to provoke the members !

hey,

its like caphp said, win10 was/is still in "beta" and not offically released yet. Thats why it didnt make much sense to Change a lot on winreducer10 when it could be that in the next win10 build it would be solved/or create another bug.

like i said, when Windows 10 will be officially released (should still be the 29th, July) winter will start doing improvements, and iĀ  also will start bug hunting

i tested it again and cortana app is removing also the search field in the taskbar. i dont know if thats ok for everyone but since my original bug report is solved (firewall breaking start menu) im marking it as solved.


edit: yes it seems that removing cortana also removes the search bar that thats wanted:
