    Ok. Wow, it does seem to need updating but is strange since I just installed the latest so recently with the Win10 update.

    I missed Windows Defender in CCleaner Utilities. I looked for it under Windows and I see it now under Utilities and unchecked it. Thanks. Now I noticed that by default, after the CCleaner update install yesterday, Acronis True Image is listed and unchecked. This is odd because I don't have Acronis installed and isn't in my list of apps. I may have installed a trialware in the past but I would have uninstalled it. Revo doesn't list it either. Any suggestions about what to do with that?
    Don't worry about that app, if you don't have it installed. Those are just default apps CCleaner puts in their app.
    But you need to run your Windows update soon as possible. You might have used a VERY Old Windows ISO file to update your computer, that is why you are running a very old version. The latest Windows ISO is much newer than the ISO you used.

    Going back to the original question I recommend:

    1. Run sfc /scannow to check the installation
    2. Create an All Tasks shortcut see https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/4...dows-10-a.html
    3. Run a Belarc Advisor report to check the installation and report missing updates
    4. Install Classic Shell and configure it to use mouse hover to open the Classic Shell menu and left click to open the Windows Start Menu
    5. Confirm the Windows recovery options using reagentc /info
    6. Check the boot configuration with bcdedit /enum
    7. Check System Restore is enabled if you want to use it
    8. Make a baseline Macrium Refeflect system backup as soon as you have a working activated Windows 10 installation and again after you have configured your installation
    9. Compare the driver versions installed by Windows 10 with the manufactuer's drivers for your PC. Generally it's best to keep the Windows 10 installed drivers apart from using the latest WHQL graphics drivers.

    Great. Thanks. I'll check all that out.

    Something I noticed yesterday while using File Explorer. In Win7 below the toolbar, were a few tabs or buttons, one of which was "New Folder" or "Add Folder". Now in File Explorer I have the R-Click the window, > New > Folder, to add a folder each time. It seems hardly any of my Win7 settings were preserved when updating to Win10. Anyway, how do I add a New Folder tab into the File Explorer windows?

    I was able to find the solution to the missing "New Folder" button: New Folder button in Windows 10? - Super User

    Starting with OldMike65's suggestion to update my Win10 ASAP, I used Windows Update and the latest update it installed was a security update from yesterday and there was another it installed today. I had it check for updates and it said my system is up to date. What does this mean, if you say it's old?

    BretMan.... Hold down the Windows key and press R ... type WINVER and click OK. Post a screenshot of the box displayed. Block any personal info.

    You're up to date. 10586.420 is the latest cumulative update for you. The slmgr must only report the base version, not with any updates. @OldMike65, Mike, could that be the case?

    Mike is not on right now, but he'll be back..... TC

    Thanks TC for the heads up, yes I believe using the slmgr /dlv command only shows the base OS installed, and license information.

    BretMans Windows 10 Pro is up to date, as his Winver displays with a retail license.

    Mike,

    Here's my slmgr /dlv & Winver to confirm your belief

    Well your Windows 10 Pro is right up to date, which shows in your latest screenshot BretMan. Last pic you showed up did not give us the latest build # , that's why we thought your Windows was an older release. You are fine. !!! Thanks for clearing that up.
    You might want to add Malwarebytes to your Windows 10 Pro for added protection.
