    i need major help please..logged in with only limited access

    i don't know what went wrong..but somehow, after I logged out..and wanted to log back on..all I saw was message said "preparing windows" I was able to log back with Microsoft acct.. but I'm on limited access.. its almost like the time when I downloaded that malicious app and it hijacked pc..but that time, I couldn't log in unlike now...the only thing I did before it crashed was I hit win+R typed msconfig..but decided to not do that..logged off and bam.. any clues?? it told me to log off but same message appears.. cant believe its deja vu all over again.

    I found the latest backup I did 2 weeks ago..but I cant get pc to use that file ..I didn't setup pc to backup using disc

    maybe I better choose to reset pc

    Not sure but it seems like you may have a corrupted profile, there is normally a specific error message, but it's possible as you were in MSConfig at the time off the issue start that no message was generated

    Have a quick read of this tutorial and see if it helps
