    Consider this or these algorithm(s):

    Preventative maintenance:
    sfc /scannow
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    chkdsk /scan

    If scannow finds operating system corruption that it fixes or doesn't fix > check results of restorehealth
    If restore health fixes scannow corruption > then recheck scannow to make sure it was not a temporary fix
    If restore health was unable to fix scannow corruption or if restore health displayed an error > perform in place upgrade repair
    If chkdsk /scan finds drive file system problems > perform chkdsk /r overnight
    For any problems with windows compare one user account to another. If there are deeper windows problems such as user accounts or registry then clean install or use backup image.
    For any malware > run a second or third malware scanning software to see if there are any other detected malware. If there are any doubts > clean install with backup image.

    When Dell pushed an Intel video driver update on my wife's XPS-13 laptop, I couldn't boot at all. You need to be abot to boot into Windows in order to do a repair install. All she had was a black screen. Extensive help here at tenforums got me to a point where I could at least boot in safe mode. Repair install still couldn't fix the driver problem.

    At that point, I was able to boot from the Macrium USB stick I had made and restore from a recent backup that just preceded the Dell-caused crash.

    It also helped that she keeps data on a D: partition. The usable backup was 4 weeks old. The Dell crash was 10 days old. I restored all but the D: partition. I left that alone.
