    A quick THANKS for this thread and the great information enclosed.

    Over the weekend my desktop blue-screened, then last night rebooted with a "repair" that almost destroyed the OS (Win10 1607). Start menu stopped operating (except right-click), File Explorer would bring only one window up at a time, multiple programs said they were corrupted, the desktop disappeared every ten minutes or so and forced a reboot, RUN did not work properly, PowerShell did not work properly, chkdsk was unable to run, a real mess. Also, SpinRite in level 2 did nothing, which is rare.

    The thread Solved Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation - Page 4 - Windows 10 Forums was excellent in giving me some hope after sfc did not work. The instructions in the thread where this message is posted were excellent in guiding me to a set of solutions that solved the issue with about 6 hours of work. This is my main workstation for general work as well as digital video production and podcast production, so this was important to get running again.

    Thank you all for participating, contributing questions and answers. You convinced me to join the forum, although I hope I don't have additional problems to report.

    Thx, I'll check that out. As for contributing help, I seem to be able to mess more up than I fix, but I'll contribute when possible. ;-)

    Then best get a system image program like Macrium Reflect(paid or free, which is good enough actually):
    Macrium Reflect Free

    And this thread in the forums is where you can see when there is an update, and if you should update the recovery drive:
    Solved New Macrium Reflect Update - Windows 10 Forums

    And here is an excellent tutorial on how to set it up and use:

    Hello everyone, I want to ask something

    So, I'm doing an In-place Upgrade right now without turning off secure boot in my UEFI settings.

    Will there any errors or something that can ruin my system?

    Thanks in advance.

    @bima1997
    No sir, should not be a problem. You're already up and running in the OS when you start the in-place upgrade/repair. It will prep the files it needs and boot a few times, but because it's booting as part of the process, there will be no issues. The UEFI Safe Boot deals with booting from external media, like DVDs or a USB thumb drive.

    Hope this helps, and good luck with your repair! TC

    Do a good system image backup first, just to be safe. Good practice.

    step:4 To do a repair install of Windows 10 with an ISO file - Can I use a Windows 10 DVD that I burned?
    This tutorial will show you how to do a repair install of Windows 10 by performing an in-place upgrade without losing anything. ​Is this tutorial just for an upgrade? Or can I use this method to repair my Windows 10 Pro install, while keeping all of my installed programs? Thanks

    Hello dlfetters48, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Yes, you can use a Windows 10 DVD as well. When you open the DVD, you would just pick up at step 4C.

    A repair install is used to repair your current installation by basically doing an in-place upgrade using the same build so you don't lose anything during the process.

    My PC has been Blue Screening every time that I put an USB stick in my front USB ports. What are the chances that this method will solve this? Thank You Brink for your earlier quick reply!!
