Angels have the Phone Box
Okay so here's my situation:
Installed v10061, BSOD trying to install TCP/IP printer. Went into a BSOD loop with failure on Atheros wrls driver athwb.sys Thread-exception-not handled". Did a refresh, and that driver has been replaced by athwn.sys and a new netathr.inf. Now it's booting up, connected to wrls, printer is installed, but lots of problems:
start button is non-functional
system restore was turned off
Toshiba in Devices and Printers has a bang on it - unknown device (I think this is the Toshiba Hot Keys. They installed in v10041 but not now.)
Windows Update is configured to never install drivers and I can't change it
No access to feedback or insider
Beta store doesn't work
The option to scan devices when connected to the computer is gone from Defender(?)
Rendering in Firefox is buggy
Had to install Classic Shell just to get around.
I had a notification a little while ago that "features were being added" and "this may take a while"....now, I see Programs is highlighted in the Classic Shell start menu, and the new item is windows\system32\fodhelper.exe, IDK - it's still dated 4-11-15, so I don't understand. I tried adding features to windows, but it wants another keycode, so that's not it.
So, is there another way to get this feedback to MS since I don't have access to it anymore through the OS?
and, anyone have any ideas how I can get this stuff working?
