What happens if I get a lot of malware or addon ware that causes the system to become unstable and I can't clean it out plus it rewrites apps. What I have done in the past is to reinstall using my install disk to put a new fresh copy on the system creating a windows.old folder until I successfully reset everything up however with this windows 10 I can not do this unless there is a way to get a install disk or iso file to create a install disk. I am very anxious to know what I am suppose to do? I do however plan to create a partition on one of my external hard drives then put a restore on the partition like I did with windows 7 but would feel so much better if I had a bootable install disk.
Lots of people can offer good advice on keeping your computer clean from the baddies.
Thank you I am going to bookmark this link however there sometimes just isn't time to track down all the troubles then download the files that might need to get replaced & I have spent days trying to get my system cleaned up so that it functions correctly & I get frustrated because I've got work to do & it is just easier to do a reinstall so that the windows.old folder is created. This has been working for me for quite some time. Plus I never can be for certain that I get all the bad malware removed or if it is just waiting in the background & comes back again. Still I like to have the physical disk so that I can use it to load into the repair area if I manage to lock myself out because I lose / forget the password but of course I have been making a password recover to avoid that situation. I need to find out what it takes to do that with windows 10 as well. It is just a good policy to have a physical disk in case I up grade my system to a new one so that I can install. As you can see just being able to clean the system isn't the only reason to have a physical disk. Hope this helps others who have not considered this and that they can then get their copy. The link provided in another post lead me to a site that is in a foreign language. Can someone provide an English version?
You can change the language by simply adjusting the URL, e.g. I replaced the "de-de" for German/Germany with "en-us" for English/United States now. The link for the download of the Media Creation Tool however stays exactly the same.
