    had the exact same prob.. game freeze and everything..
    do this..
    crt alt del to bring up task manager
    click file
    run new task
    enter msconfig w/admin privileges
    go to boot section, click on safeboot and network
    ok to restart
    after restart just repeat the process but unclick the safe boot square in msconfig
    restart again..
    you should be good.
    I have just done this as this error came up and my laptop have been restarting for the last hour?!? Help!

    I was getting the 'Critical Error: Start menu & Cortana...' error about every third time I restarted my computer. Now I think I have found a solution (at least one that worked for me).
    By chance, are you using a PIN or your face to log in to the system? Try changing the method to your actual password. I did it just by idle curiosity about two weeks ago and realized I haven't gotten the error since. I didn't even have to uninstall my antivirus (which is AVAST, by the way) or install any other program. Of course, YMMV.
    Hope that helps.
