    Hello Guru3d The Great and Professional Admins and Members
    First of all excuse me if this is wrong section to ask for help but im new here and I do not usually register on sites in general so please i hope you just understand my situation and my language :oops: Because I also can't speak English fluently .. ♥

    Yesterday I noticed that some programs and services on my laptop are using my Gtx 1650 illogically !! and they caused overheating cpu and gpu plus both throttle so i decided to use a program called ThrottleStop it helped me with some games like Dota2 become very smooth and high fps
    but other games like Call of duty warzone become worst than ever too much lag and fps drops its literally unplayable . but this is not what im asking help for let us back to my problem
    the Services that used my integrated card are :

    dax api.exe its connected with my sound card (dolby or Realtek not sure but i did remove both)

    startmenuexperiencehost.exe (this is my problem) I didn't know it was related to the taskbar until i did remove it too :S

    minisearchhost.exe nothing wrong "for now" when i did remove this one

    Widgets.exe

    Game DVR and broadcast (im Not sure how to literally write the last 2 services but they are connected with xbox services and i felt my laptop is breathing again especially after these)

    i tried to install Open Shell but still cant use the taskbar fully look how is it look


    image_2021-10-19_201208.png

    cant see any opened tap on the taskbar such as my browser or explorer or clock and date or battery icon , and right click on taskbar also is not working
    and the windows 10 context menu is back again ( i think its a good thing :D)
    but i need my taskbar work again :( i tried to use troubleshoot and windows update but it did not help maybe because i did remove the whole folders of Services that i mentioned after i gave myself access to full control of C:\Windows\SystemApps then i started my stupid idea even after my laptop become much faster and snappier i cant live without the taskbar so please help i dont want to reinstall my windows 11 or use recovery from iso i have so many settings that i cant remember how i done them so please help me i know that u can guru3d ♥

    Have you tried using System Restore?

    or use powershell with this command:

    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Open Task Manager, then the Process tab.
    Kill explorer.exe

    then click on Run and type explorer.exe

    Those services are from edge browser, Cortana (search service) and nVidia services.

    Looking at that picture of task manager, Edge and Cortana are installed and running.
    They are probably using the GPU to accelerate the UI. To do transparencies, transitions effects, etc.

    i did run sfc /scannow and everything back to normal again but as you can see sir services are using the gpu again
    and i think that is the other services like gamebar presence writer and the rest services that i mentioned before will use the gpu again soon as i start a game or something related with the services so the performance of my gpu will be less again :(

    thanks for help anyway i think u can archive the post now

    Guru3d is the best ♥
