    after using ccleaner last nite, my computer won't boot.


    ok so this morning after using ccleaner last nite, my computer won't boot.

    i'm stuck at boot with the spinning wheel, i've shut it down and rebooted 3 times, now i can atleast see some kind of wizard telling it can help me to boot.

    so i go through the steps to do a system point restore , but to my surprise there isn't one to use ?

    i've set my restore point usage to 5% (10gb) after installing win10 in March, that should be enough. but the boot wizard doesn't find anything, what is going on ?

    on top of that, the problem arose after using ccleaner and i had a c:\windows.old folder maybe it messed with things in there.

    my 2 questions: if i boot with the wizard to command line , what do i do ?

    2nd question: wtf is gonna happen in a couple weeks when windows in its "wisdom" decides to delete c:\windows.old itself ? will my system lock up too ?

    btw c:\windows.old is a previous windows 10 install from February that f**ed up too. Seriously guys , i'm not impressed with windows 10.

    it looks cool like a sports car but stable like sh*t. /rant over.

    i've ran sfc /scannow on my F:\ (REAL c:\) but there was an error stating that it had scanned 100% of the drive but couldn't complete the operation due to some resource protection ? (paraphrasing as the system is in french)

    as Sheldon says, what fresh hell is this ?

    :)

  3. PC won't boot after failed checkdisk

    Hello,

    My Desktop PC was getting a little slow the last few weeks, so I decided to clean it up using CCleaner and AVG PC tuneup.

    After this I wanted to run a checkdisk. This however stalled at 10% and wouldn't complete.

    I had to power the PC down using the power button.

    Now when I try to start the PC it won't boot. It powers on, but doesn't connect with the screen or the keyboard.

    All I know is that is has power.

    Any idea's on how to fix this?

    Thanks

    Abe
