    Windows 10 reverts back to a previous state on EVERY reboot

    New to the forum so hello all.
    A few days ago my Pc started to act slow and slugging so i restarted it a couple of times and on the 3rd reboot it started a disc check. Once it finished it worked flawlessly BUT it had reverted to a previously unknown restore point. Ok i thought and reinstalled some programs that were missing and went to bed. Next day i booted it up and all the programs were missing again.....The same unknown restore point was back! Curious now, i installed a program, rebooted the pc, and once again, same restore point! Just what is happening?

    What happens if you delete the restore points using Disk Cleanup?

    Deleted all restore points and nothing has changed. Boots up, message 'configuring Windows' appears and back to basic Windows and I've lost all recent programs again. Baffling!

    Would you consider reinstalling Windows 10 ?
    If yes, and since you lost all programs you installed repeatedly anyway, would you consider doing a Clean Install of Windows 10 ?

    If you check in the Program Files folders, do you see folders for any programs that you installed that disappeared?
    And the programs that stay are not Windows programs, correct (by "Windows programs" I mean Internet Explorer, etc.)?

    What happens if you open System Restore and restore to the remaining restore point (Disk Cleanup will not delete the latest restore point)?
