(You're in the wrong forum, but I guess this thread will be moved...)

I know about nothing of 10.
I know nothing of this "silicophilic".
I know nothing of Sync Tool.

All I can say about his article is wow!
It includes some potentially dangerous stuff - if you get it wrong, like, RD /S /Q, from an Admin prompt no less.

I'll suppose you've rebooted your computer.

First thing I would do, is restart your computer into Safe Mode & see if Start works.

If you think the issue is caused by Sync Tool, uninstall it & see if there is any change.

What version of 10?
What antivirus are you using?


I would generally dislike any "microsoft forum" (thinking there would be all kinds of "irrelevant" fixes or not clear fix mentioned), but in this case, I'd peruse something like Windows 10 start button not working & see if anything mentioned there stands out to you (like particular softwares mentioned that you may be running).


(Another one of this "fixit" articles, also totally unknown to me, went so far as to have you download the Win10 ISO & reinstall Windows from that, lol.)
