    Yes some posters recommend running it again now you have cleaned it up a bit with what billy recommended
    Then after that run CCleaner online and that will clear away all the shit before you decide whether to go back or reset

    As for your assumptions; yes, that is right. I do have a Windows 7 installation disk and set of recovery disks. Yes.



    I have a Windows 7 disk. I can just reset it back to that if all else fails.
    So, the windows old file is most likely gone. I think what I did this time round was installed Windows 10 through a DVD that I used the Windows tools (Microsoft suggested it for those who wanted it on a USB flash drive / DVD) That's how I got Windows 10 this time round. But before I had to upgrade from Windows 7 (Which worked fine) but if I remember correctly... I was told that the problem with a Windows 7 - Windows 10 upgrade is that it don't run as smooth as having a fresh-installed-Windows 10.

    I wonder if this is the reason why this isn't working.
    If everything was working fine for Windows 10 (I would've actually brought it by now) Since it looks great, and I just love it.
    I did run the sfc /scannow a first time today. I haven't ran it twice just yet, should I? I tried the one billy posted about and it got an Error (I posted the images above) hopefully that answers all questions.
    OK. The option to go back to Windows 7 from within the Windows 10 is no longer available to you. The grace period is 31 days only.

    RE : I was told that the problem with a Windows 7 - Windows 10 upgrade is that it don't run as smooth as having a fresh-installed-Windows 10.
    Maybe. If you ask the Clean Install purists, they will swear by it.
    Clean Install is to start fresh. Keep nothing, no files, no previous settings, no apps.
    You could try a Clean Install and find out. Providing that you Windows 10 has been activated. If it has not been activated, do NOT do a clean install.

    As you also said, you could always go back to Windows 7 with your installation DVD.

    Same Problem: Error, it seems like this 3rd scan still fix whatever it is that remains broken.

    Also, do I have to use CCleaner to do a Registry (Scan) too?
    I already ran the 'CLEANER' in CCleaner, and it's now complete.
    So, do I have to use the Registry (Scan) now, too?

    NO !!!
    Do not touch the Registry cleaner section. Not unless you know what you are doing. Registry cleaner maybe useful for computer experts. For us, the "regular" users, stay away from it.

    Sfc told you that you have corrupt files but unable to repair.
    CCleaner does NOT do repair. Forget about it.

    Thank God I didn't move away from my instinct. I had a feeling that it was not to be messed with. Thank you so much! I honestly feel would've regretted that BIG TIME! You have saved me from that, thanks. I'm not really a beginner, I'm kind of a (Mid-expert) Well, like in between Beginner & Expert. Yeah, there is probably a title for it but I don't know it at this time. Stupid mind...
    Anyway, I hope all works out with whatever it is that I must do to fix this problem. If it results in Windows 7 (Installation) then I'll have to go with that Plan. Sadly, I really didn't want to leave Windows 10 behind. I've really enjoyed using it before, and it's a shame that there is now a problem that just wants my computer to keep coming up with more issues / problems.

    Good news is:
    After the 3rd boot-up the computer hasn't crashed, Windows 10 is working fine.
    But I won't hold my breath because I know for a fact that these errors / freezes / crashes can occur at any moment in time.
    It's common on Google Chrome / Opera, but for now it hasn't happened. I am worried of it happening again later, though.
    I just wish I knew what was causing it to go through this annoying process. I don't see many people with Windows 10 complaining about my problem. So, it must not be common. I've been told it may be to do with Drivers but I've tried that already. And it's always a pain to find where all the Updates are for my drivers... Le'Sigh

    Thanks. It's just a shame that it does this on Windows 10 on the first boot-up.
    I Log in, and then it restarts (a few screens later) and it seems to work fine.
    There must be something that is triggering it to restart / crash / BSOD :c

    " After the 3rd boot-up " as in 3rd restart ?
    Do nothing now until Threshold 2 is released. Update to it and see what happens.
