    Windows 10 Applications Error Cannot Open Any Program

    Hey everyone. I left my computer on last night and my monitors OFF and when I went on the computer today as usual.. I then saw the windows 8+ version of Blue Screen of Death with the sad face. I decided to restart my computer and then windows started repairing my C drive which confused me. After I logged into Windows 10 I noticed errors pop up about applications not being able to start ..like Firefox or VLC media player. I can't even load up Task Manager or run services.msc in the run window. I understand that I will need a NEW SSD to fix this but in the meantime does anyone have other solutions ?

    1. Check your disk hasn't failed - no system specs so I can't tell you how. I could assume you use a SSD as you mention one.
    2. If your disk has failed, then if you have created a system image and or disk images (as everyone should) then you can restore these to a new drive.
    3. Otherwise you need a new drive and reinstall.

    If your drive hasn't failed, then you need to check whether your PC hasn't attempted to upgrade to the anniversary edition and then failed.

    If you can determine the build version (Windows key + R, type Winver), then using the corresponding boot medium or mounted iso, you can try running an in-place upgrade repair install, for example.
