Lenovo Yoga 700 14ISK - Problems with Lenovo software and Start Menu

I have some problems with the Lenovo software. Lenovo Account Portal does not launch Lenovo Companion and Lenovo Settings. Also, Lenovo Solution Center is missing from the Start Menu.

 

The second problem is that some tiles are blank in Start Menu. Seemingly it's the apps that aren't Metro. I'm not sure when the problem started, but I think it was like that since I got the PC. If I right click the apps, the only option will be "Pin to Start", and with some apps: Share and Rate. Here's a picture of the problem:

2017-01-21.pngI did already try:

Restarting the PC.

Doing scannow, DISM, and scannow again.

Fixing Registry errors with CCleaner.

Updating BIOS and drivers.

 

What can I do to fix the problem?

Hi agrastiOS,

 

the quickest and easiest way to get this working is to One Key Recovery your machine and then test it before any updates have been applied.

 

Hope this help you and let us know how you get on

Re: Lenovo Yoga 700 14ISK - Problems with Lenovo software and Start Menu

Managed to fix all the problems by doing a repair installation of Windows 10 with an In-Place Upgrade! (You won't lose any data and apps if you do so! I didn't lose my language even as it said it would in the tutorial) Here's a tutorial if someone else has similar problems: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/16397-repair-install-windows-10-place-upgrade.html

 

Thanks anyways for your help! I didn't want to lose my data by using OneKey Recovery.

This is solved!
