    windows 1o until i dump it for linux

    ongoing issues


    I did the upgrade from 7 to 10. Had issues and contacted microsoft help. Tech said I needed to create a new profile which they did for me.
    My start button works in my old profile but I can't access my files there.
    If I switch profiles to the new one, my start button is broke however I can get into all my files.
    So how do I fix this mess?
    Tried the power shell thing with sfc /scan now, it came back with no problems.

    Windows 10 Pro x64

    Try this: Right click on Start menu icon and select REBOOT. If right click doesn't work, press ctrl+alt+del and select Reboot from there. Shutdown doesn't fix it, only Reboot!

    That did nothing. Can't open up action center either and when I click on date the calendar does not come up.

    Do a Repair Install, otherwise known as Upgrade Install.
    Use one of the 2 links below to download the iso file............
    Media Creation Tool ( MCT ) :
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10

    Tech Bench
    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/softw...load/techbench


    Using MCT as example................
    Download the Tool and run it.
    Then select
    Create installation media for another PC
    That will begin downloading the ISO file to your computer.
    When download is completed, RIGHT click at the ISO > click Mount > click Setup.exe.
    That will begin installing Windows 10.
    You have the choice of keeping settings, files and apps, or keeping nothing.
    No product key is required.
    Activation will be automatic.

    Ok, did all that and ended up with same mess, same problems.
    If I need to do a fresh install and lose everything I might as well switch to linux.
