    I agree with @simrick. The tutorial section here is about the best "manual" you can find. Complete with step by step instructions. We even have several Videos made by tenforums members you can find here. Solved Windows 10 instructional videos by Ten Forums members - Windows 10 Forums

    I followed the "Dism" commands that you provided and here are the results. Please give me your opinion. I'm still planning on a clean install but would like to learn some things as I go along. I have never heard of the Dism function.

    Also, are basic commands case sensitive? Thank you.Attachment 95374

    I've really made a mess of keeping this thread (or series of conversations) in order. I would like to learn the right way to post when there are more than one person I'm communicating with.

    I'm familiar with Belarc and use it. Speccy is good as well. A lot of OEMs and especially Dell has a habit of manipulating drivers to work with their systems. That makes the normal drivers downloaded from the manufacturer not work properly.

    Shouldn't I use Belarc or Speccy to give you my specs?

    Either one if you don't know your specs. Both programs are very good.

    I would like to know how to include screenshots and files in both posts and replies. I never could figure it out (maybe I've just been lazy) . Do I need to convert a screenshot into a file format first before posting? Is there a tutorial for this - or is it simple enough for you to just tell me (I know I might be asking for your time unnecessarily - and that's not my intent). I get to the File Upload Manager and I'm "assuming" that you cannot embed a screenshot in a post - but have to convert it to a file first. I suspect this is the way I have to go and I've answered my own question. Please confirm.

    Also, I've noticed that you folks annotate your screenshots. Please tell me what program you use for this.

    ANOTHER CLUE: I've noticed that my CPU usage approaches 100% momentarily just before the blinking cycle starts.

    For screenshots This will show you how,

    I use Screenpresso to take and annotate screenshots. The free version is good enough for what I need.

    I have been using Snagit. When I installed Screenpresso (to try it), I was told to shut down Snagit because there might be a conflict. Snagit is set to start with a Windows boot. So I have to remove it from The Startup menu. Problem is, In W10, I don't know where that is.

    Also, as of today, the notification area and the System Tray don't appear nearly as often (since I stopped the Autohide). I restarted the Autohide, but still have the problem with thos two areas that aren't showing up often enough to make the computer somewhat useful.

Here's why: Desktop, Notification area, Taskbar and System Tray blink on and off every few seconds. Everything worked fine in Windows 7 (I have an Image Backup). In W10, System File Checker shows errors, not in Windows 10.
