You have to disable it on start up.
MS tech found this and I checked it out again and again and it does.
You have the does not respond when clicking the mouse on the start bar icon, and search bar, other apps such as setting wont load either.
>> AMD external events utility on start up
Well, that's pretty vague info.
Got any more details(links.), what 17.7(MS store/AMD vers ?) ?
It has been reported(for some users) across many win10 build versions(a number of threads on tenforums.com).
The start bar (pop up menus) wont function when you click it or the tool bar menu (when you right click the time) unless you disable AMD external events utility in msconfig, pretty much.
