This helped. So far I have not seen the issue reoccur. It also seemed to have solved my other question of how to fix fences clipping icon text. Fences seems to be functioning better. Not sure why purging/reinstalling helped. I have never hacked the registry or anything else.
However, within 24 hours after doing this, the issue with a broken folder called desktop in the stardock start menu. There is no ability to put anything in the folder, nor delete the folder. Im not sure if this is a fences issue or start10. I say that because before I saw dead folders for every fence on my desktop. If this is the wrong area I can post to start10 forum
Lastly, i cant seem to find a button to mark a question as solved or closed. Do i just leave the post and a week later it autocloses
