After the windows 10 update was installed today on my machine, I keep getting the bad_pool_header error message. I have tried to do all the options (except a system restore) & it keeps going back to the same error message.

I am currently running a start-scan, but am unsure if that will fix the problem.

Since upgrading to windows 10, start up freezes every 1 in 10 sessions. To which I remove the battery and then wait a while and then run a start up scan and that seems to fix it.

Is there anything I can do instead of a system restore? Unfortunately my last backup failed & I'm currently working in a country where the internet is terrible so this would be my last resort.

Thanks in advance.
