    Windows showing unusual behaviour.


    Recently I was notified that I should be updated (1809) and moreover the whole laptop was showing unusual behaviour. I eventually updated and after that the system has been showing unusual behaviour of which are

    -The texts dissapear from incons, task manager and all

    -Whenever I try to open Chrome , the whole pc freezes to the point where the only option is a Power kill

    -Disk usage is 100% with no processes on task manager. There are processes but they dont add upto 100% usage combined.

    The only thing I did prior to the update was force remove some bloatware since I wanted smoother experience.

    I tried using DISM and tried to upgrade my pc to 1903 with media creation tool but the problem still persists.

    Thank you.

    PS : I also tried the windows repair method tutorial from this forum.

    Same issue in safe mode although slightly violent. I did all the things you said and the issues still there. The scanning returned no threats and it never asked for a restart and unfortunately since I can't use my pc I can't get the files for you. The results document said zero for every items it listed and if you want further details let me know.

    It could be faulty hardware problem if you can disconnect graphic card to see issue resolves.

    I'm not entirely sure how that's possible for a laptop. Although I really don't think it might be the graphics card mostly because the problem now is the system freezes to the point where I can't move my mouse and I can only use my pc in safe mode now that too with limited software for example if I open Chrome the system freezes again
