    Could also be a corrupted user profile
    If the above does not work
    and you have another user account with admin rights - try logging into that
    If you do not have one - create one and then reboot and try

    If it is the user profile then after you can copy and paste your data from your old profile to your new profile
    Do not try and copy the whole users folder that will not work
    Open the profile and copy only the files within the folders

    Another possible cause, can be the use of some third party apps which purport to make you computer go faster by tweaking services etc.
    If you are still having the other problems you appear to have suffered then IMHO it is time for a complete clean install -

    and the choice is yours of course, but generally speaking torrenting is a sure fire way - to introduce possible problems to your system - sooner or later.

    The best option is to mount the Windows image and then point to the directory.
    You can find an example there:

    I think the problem is probably in the registry regarding the network adapter. If you have already performed an in-place upgrade and the error persists, I don't think the problem is bad system files unless there is a problem with your hard drive.

    You can still execute the following commands and report back what you get as a result.

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    and then sfc /scannow
    Thanks. Here's the results.

    Hello you need Windows ISO file regardless if you plan clean installation or not, if you have it mount it in Windows explorer by right clicking on ISO file.

    Assuming you mounted Windows ISO file to example X:\Windows drive next step is to open command prompt as Administrator and run:

    Code:
    dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:X:\sources\SxS\ /LimitAccess
    Update path in above command to point to SxS folder within mounted Windows ISO

    Reboot as needed then run:
    Code:
    sfc /scannow
    Again reboot if needed.
    Do I need a USB or a CD for the ISO? Or is there a way I can just download and keep in my C: drive?

    Hello, your last run (Without ISO) seems to imply there was no issue, my understanding (according to MS docs) is that if Windows update does not work then the command without the ISO should fail or not do it's job.

    I'm not sure if doing it again with ISO would make any difference but if you want to try out you need ISO file which can be download from here:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10

    Do I need a USB or a CD for the ISO?
    You don't need USB or CD, only iso file downloaded to current Windows (on drive).

    However if you already have it on CD or USB you can use that as well.
    See reddit post in post #9 for usage.

    I was expecting the result.
    Do you have a second user account on the computer?

    @zebal

    I would not try any further steps with Dism or sfc here.
    I am assuming that the error is in the registry.

    Apologies all, I'm back from getting tons of BSOD using the driver verifier. (I had another post regarding my BSOD issue that happened a few days ago: Laptop freezes with distorted lines or BSOD or failed to power up.)

    I set up a 2nd local user with adminstrator rights and try accessing the window updates and network settings tab but to no avail and then I delete the use off.

    Any further suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

    is a good example of the problems caused by running two threads at the SAME time, on what is basically the same set of problems on the same computer.
    You are trying to jump from one thread to another - and suggestions made on here - this thread, and on the other thread may well be repeated or indeed one suggestion may negate another one.

    YOU will get many Driver Verifier BSOD`s with those settings you have made.

    I know many people are committed to Verifier but on Windows 10 many aspects of it are irrelevant, compared with earlier editions of windows that did not have the self checking systems of 10
    Why You Shouldn’t Use the Driver Verifier in Windows 10

    My own opinion is that you MAY have either a ram fault or a drive fault
    The favourite I think is ram.

    I recommend you cancel verifier and run a Memtest. If you need it I will post details of how - but it is here

    I think this thread should be closed and continued in BSOD subforum because the OP was experiencing BSOD anyway min 2 days before this thread was made, and the cause is likely well known as the OP explained himself in post #3

    @Macboatmaster
    Hello there, while most of the said is true, from my XP the only time one should not trust driver verifier is when it pinpoints drivers randomly or removing them does not solve the problem.

    This specific case seems to imply the OP did some overclocking with XTU, and I think hardware should be put to normal before running any tests, not because something bad could happen but because testing overclocked hardware may not be reliable.

    Intel XTU is a Windows*-based performance-tuning software that enables novice and experienced enthusiasts to overclock, monitor, and stress a system.

    I also expected the result.
    As already said, assume a registry failure.

    Follow Macboatmaster's suggestions and first make sure that your system hardware is fine.

    Once the problem has been found and resolved, reinstall Windows.

    Thanks. I tried running it and my system crashed with horizontal lines running over. I also note that there's loud whistling sound and fan sound from my laptop and it feels overheated. This has been ongoing for a few days now, even since the windows has been updated to 20H2 which resulted me to post and get help here... link to the screenshot here: file.jpeg - Google Drive
