Welcome
Two things to try
First try a system restore from 2 days before the problem
The next solution is to make a new user account. The one you are in is corrupt
System Restore

You opened a new user account and start menu still would not stay open?

If yes try this
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If the start button works with the new account, you have to use the new account.
