    Cannot Reset Laptop Running Windows 10


    Hello! I have been using this HP Laptop since the beginning of the semester but it crashes almost daily and I haven't had a chance to repair it till now that the fall semester is over. I ran sfc /scannow in the command prompt and it says there are corrupt files. When I run this in safe mode there are no corrupt files Idk if that is relevant. I have my logs and can share them but these are a few error lines I have spotted:


    2020-12-05 04:40:32, Error CBS Session: 30853874_4023504462 failed to perform store corruption detect and repair operation. [HRESULT = 0x80070246 - ERROR_ILLEGAL_CHARACTER]

  2. Laptop running Windows 10 keeps freezing

    Hi,

    Since you already tried several troubleshooting steps, such us running a hardware diagnostic test on all hardware components, checked the system files, updated all drivers, and as well the BIOS, then this is perhaps an issue with the laptop itself. Now,
    to isolate what is causing performance issues on your laptop, we suggest that you perform a factory reset, then check if it's the same. To perform the suggest step, please refer to this article:

    Recovery options in Windows 10.


    If the issue persists after performing the suggested step, contact the laptop manufacturer to have it replaced.

    Let us know the outcome.

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Thanks,

    The Users list compared to the Profile list you posted earlier tell me there is not an issue with Users (a known issue where there is a profile in the list, but not actual User folder).

    The error code suggests corruption in the CBS manifest:
    Try these steps one at time until the issue is resolved or you run out of steps.

    change the value of DisableWindowsUpdateAccess to 0
