    Sorry was asleep, different timezone to you guys, trying Dism /Image:E:\ /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth.
    E:\ is the OS drive when booting from win10 usb drive.

    Does it matter if I choose UEFI to boot and I'm using an ISO that has multiple win10 versions on it?

    Heading out for a couple hours, then will move onto the boot rescue to save files and check the HD mentioned by zbook.

    I have a clone of the HD already, I used Macrium to clone to external HD before i started working on this.

    Running thru the tests now.

    Having had a backup image why not use it without all of the troubleshooting steps?

    The clone of the HD was done 2 days ago, not before the corrupt windows file/s. If I have to do a clean install, I can copy over personal data from it. Its a clone, not an image.

    booted up off macrium rescue usb, made clone of the SSD to external HD, plugged external HD into working computer and checked that i could access all personal files. I've always done it this way. Dunno if its the best way, but don't work in this industry anymore.

    Run chkdsk /x /f /r on the drive.
    It may take hours so run it overnight.
    Use the information in this link to find the chkdsk report in the event viewer and post the results into the thread:
