  1. Cannot run .exe files, cmd (admin)


    Hi! I tried to install a program to recover some lost pictures from an android phone. Later on some error popped up basically saying I couldn’t install the program. I’ve since then deleted the installer exe file. For some reason nothing was working so i force shutdown my laptop and rebooted. Now a variety of errors keep occurring that prevent me from fixing or troubleshooting my laptop completely.


    Here are some things and errors I’ve come across:

    1) I cannot press the home button - nothing pops up even on right click

    2) My search bar and notification tray are non functional

    3) My laptop won’t connect to the internet even if my connection is working for other devices

    4) Critical error after attempting taskkill /f /im explorer.exe in cmd (w/o admin privileges)

    5) Cannot access any admin functions (such as in cmd)

    6) Running certain files from C: generally returns “The device is not ready”


    Side notes:

    1) A gold lock appears in my system tray whenever I can access/see it which I believe refers to some log being full. I can’t clear that log because of my cmd admin privileges issue

    2) I’m unable to use startup repair due to a lost password (i use a pin to login)



    Is there anything I can do to get my laptop functioning normally again?



    I’m pretty sure I missed out on listing some things I’ve already tried but I hope this is enough to go on...

    :)
