    In File Explorer you see C: but when you click that there is nothing showing in the pane to the right?

    I'm not sure I understand what you are asking. What do you need to repair?

    Can you right click on the C: Drive and view Properties. Please show us what you see when looking at the Security tab in Properties for Users. Here is mine for comparison:

    i also posted in Windows forum with all the information on this long story short , it had to go in for repair they could not do anything but reformat the drives and reinstall Windows . They were telling me of 2 hPa computers that have been destroyed by the update , I'm discussed in the whole thing especially because Windows don't hold them selves responsible for anything.
    I live in a small town and our repairers are getting several computers a day and it's all over this update
