    Took Ownership over C Drive


    So I did something stupid and now my computer isn't running properly. Ever since I took ownership of the C Drive it takes over an hour, almost two, to boot up. Luckily for me this is the only problem I have noticed.
    I cannot revert back to original ownership (Trusted Installer) but I'm wondering if I do a clean reset and reinstall Windows 10? Any advice to how I can revert my C drive if that doesn't work?

    Welcome to the forum. If you delete all partitions and reinstall from dvd or usb it will all be brand new and work

    It might be easier to just use the Refresh DVD. It works the same as if you did a flush and install, just a lot easier.

    I have used Windows Repair Tool to reset all the default permissions on Drives after such an error , though I was not suffering from the long boot times you are so it may not be the same.

    I have not used the Tool for anything else but it seemed to help me with this.... I UN-checked everything on the Repair Tab and just checked reset permissions on Drive : XXX as needed and let it do it's thing. I used the portable version so I didn't need to install anything...or uninstall anything....

    An inplace Upgrade is likely the next best thing....

    Any chance you have System Restore turned on?

    I have noticed that Microsoft set it as a default of Off when installing Windows 8 on for some reason. There are a lot of issues with every OS that can be done better when it comes to things like a Kiosk reset after letting a guest use the system, or even only load those services and hardware that you are needing at the time that you are using the computer, instead of loading them and then placing devices into a standby state waiting for a IRQ that may never come.
