    Yeah I did, it didn't find anything!
    Okay, so how do I go about it now? Do you have any idea how it could have happened?

    No i have no idea how user account corrupted.


    1. Open Control Panel.
    2. Select System and Security and then System.
    3. Click Advanced System Settings.
    4. Under User Profiles, click Settings.
    5. Select the profile you want to copy.
    6. Click Copy to, and then enter the name of, or browse to, the profile you want to overwrite. This will usually be in C:\Users\username, where username is the name of the profile to which you are copying.
    7. Click Permitted to use, and then add all user accounts to which you want to give full profile control.
    8. Click OK.

    So I don't know if I've just ****ed up real bad or not, but I put this command %systemroot%\system32\rstrui.exe on cmd like you said before and my Laptop is now restoring Windows (if that ia what it is called)... Is that a problem? Should I still do this thing you said to in your last post afterwards?
    Thank you so much for your patience and help mate!

    If you have restore point which can resolve the issue then restore Windows 10.

    You are very welcome!

    Its good idea to let Windows 10 create backups of registry.

    Enable Automatic Backup of System Registry when Restart in Windows 10

    Also, in your normal account, after you enter explorer and get things back to normal, start Task Manager, click on the Startup tab and see what is shown as Enabled there. Post a screen capture here in your thread we can look at, something like this:
