    Is all this really necessary just because chkdsk doesn't work properly? Or can I live with it the way it is?

    Everything else runs fine, otherwise.

    Besides, I did an in-place upgrade using the Media Creation Tool ISO to go from Windows 8.1 to 10 back in December.

    What problem led you to run chkdsk?

    Try it in Safe Mode too.

    Unfortunately, In-Place Upgrades aren't like... immunizations.
    All they do is check the files in the existing install against the ISO image's files, and replace the ones that are corrupt.

    Depending on the problems, you may have to do many of them, or none.

    All they are really is a shortcut, when in the past, a clean install would have been recommended.



    As mentioned in post #10... a clean install is probably the way to go.
    "This time" you can get things set up properly and start a really great system employing backups.

    Thanks for all the info.

    I think I'm gonna skip a clean install. It sounds like a minor problem in the face of re-imaging the whole thing and building it from scratch all over again.

    Hell, I don't even have a DVD drive to reinstall Office 2016, anymore.

    I think my best options are to...

    A.) Leave it alone.

    or

    B.) Do an in-place repair.

    You can "try" an In-Place Repair, but if the problem is due to a corrupted driver, which it might be... an In-Place Upgrade won't fix it.

    As for Office 2016... this may be an option...

    But the choice is yours... ofc.

    True, but I could always re-install that corrupted driver again on a clean install. And there we go again.

    Nah, 2016 is still good and M$ has gotten enough money from me, anyway. Not to mention, I have 2021 on another machine and have complained about having to give them an email address in order to install and register it. Just so they can harvest email addresses for marketing purposes.

    I appreciate your help. Thanks, anyway.
