    our thinking is along the same line because it's at 8% reset right now. Replying to you on my phone although it did say I could never go back to Windows 7 so that kind of sucks plus I have to reinstall every program I downloaded

    Yes, if you upgraded and it has been over 30 days and do not have a system image or a OS disc. Try sfc and DISM commands first, if they do not work, can try inplace repair upgrade which you will not loose anything, then you go from there, what i would do. Hopefully not hardware related.

    Seems like a driver's issue. What happens, when you disable GPU/hardware acceleration in a browser?

    Try Google Chrome Portable - no need to install, just unpack it and run to test some videos.

    And if still does not play, try: Google Chrome - How to disable hardware acceleration

    Maybe you should try rolling back the drivers. I had the most recent GeForce drivers installed. Finally I just installed the Windows Vista driver for my Video Card and it runs a lot better. That's one thing I noticed about windows 10, the allows you to install older drivers if you have older hardware. And that's probably better than using whatever they provide in updates, etc. And in fact, I installed all of my original chipset drivers which were designed for windows seven and everything seems to work a lot better now.

    Yes Windows media player, VLC, Chrome, Windows Edge. Its even worse there are multiple things that won't open now. Music won't play.
    Steam won't start. Shows it starts in Task manager then nothing happens and then it disappears from Task manager
    Microsoft Edge browser won't close without using Task manager.
    GMail freezes chrome browser even with no videos on the page.
    AVG interface wouldn't close at all. Even with Task manager it just would say not responding when I tried to End Process. Had to uninstall to get it off my page.

    I have run Spybot, Malwarebytes, Windows Defender, AVG. Looking for viruses or Malware with no joy. I don't know what's going on
    Is it even possible to reinstall Windows 10? It was Free so how does that work??
    This seems like more of an issue then a browser or video drivers now, maybe at the beginning it did.

    You are right, only reset might help. Or the poster might try to run my bat file as admin.

    Does that invoke the standard DISM repair command? I'll try it on my machine. Oh, it invokes a full reset? Well, maybe if my system gets hosed badly.

    Yes and some basic commands, I tried to include a full chkdsk, but that requires restart.
    So far people, who have tried it, never reported back, either fixed it or ... who knows.

    Well I don't want to do a reset, you have a version of that script with the reset removed?

    Let him try SFC and Dism regular old fashioned way first, then he can also try inplace repair upgrade without loosing all.
