    There are likely other options besides clean install but if files are backed up and can be restored it is often the best option.

    Clean Install Windows 10

    Find a flash drive that you can format (> or = 8 GB)
    Download Windows 10 ISO File
    Create Bootable USB Flash Drive to Install Windows 10
    Yeah, i've done chkdsk, sfc scan, I felt like a clean reinstall would be a good option, a couple months ago, I kept getting errors with windows update and some updates never installed properly. Like during the beginning of 2019, my windows update put my comp into a bootloop, so I had to clean reinstall, not long after Windows update had errors again. I've been using the Microsoft creation tool. Maybe I should've download the ISO from elsewhere?
    My specs are mid-range, not even bad, I have 1 SSD and 1 HHD, I mean, I don't have much files on my SSD, but I just felt like it would solve most of my computer problems.

    Thanks for letting me know!

    1) Update the specs in the "My Computer" section:

    System Specs - Fill in at Ten Forums
    In the left corner below in your post you find 'My System Specs'.
    After clicking it you can find a link a little below that says 'Update your System Spec', click on this link to get to the page where you can fill in your system specs.
    System Info - See Your System Specs - Windows 7 Help Forums

    Include PSU. cooler, case, peripherals and anything attached to the computer by wired or wireless (mouse, keyboard, headset, printer, xbox, USB wireless network card, etc.)

    2) Open the motherboard manufacturer's website > support and drivers > enter the model > view drivers > post a URL or hyperlink into the thread

    3) After the clean install > install drivers from the motherboard website > for drivers needed and not displayed use the component manufacturer's websites: Intel, Nvidia, AMD, Killer Networks, Reatek, etc.

    4) Perform Windows updates.

    5) Make a backup image using Macrium and save the image to another drive or the cloud:

    Backup and Restore with Macrium Reflect
