    Hi Aditya_Roy

    Thank you gladly for your help, I think my problem arose
    from having two OS's on my PC, I also have Windows 7 Pro
    and a partition D: I use for backup to keep a copy of
    all my Doc's and Applications,
    So maybe this is why I kept getting a msg
    saying one of my drives needs a check for consistency.
    I prefer to switch Windows backup off and make a copy
    of all Documents on my spare partition D:
    as it quicker and saves Disk space on the OS.
    But this didn't stop Windows making three more little
    drives for backup purposes. That's 5 in all, I'm sure
    this would confuse R2D2 from StarWars or any novice lol
    Anyhow after wiping and deleting those then running a
    chkdsk /f, From the command prompt, Everything is now
    going smooth, touch wood -:
    Heres some details,
    * Typing winver on Windows 10 Pro in the runbox gimme
    the following:
    Microsoft Windows, Version 1909 OS Build 18363.900
    * System Information gives me this:
    Version 10.0.18363 Build 18363
    * System Manufacturer Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd
    IntelR CoreTM i5 CPU 760 @ 2.80GHz 2794 Mhz,
    4 cores, 4 logical...
    * I purchased Windows 10 Pro last April, because my
    previous free upgrade versions on ISO Disks kept
    failing and crashing
    * I have delayed updates because Ask Woodies website
    technical advice says the new update edition 2004 is
    full of bugs and hasn't been tested properly

    * I can't give you the bluescreen stop error code as
    I switched the machine off soon as I seen the
    bluescreen.
    It happened about ten days ago.
    Thank you!

  2. Checking Disk Consistency

    Ok i did as viper suggested, but it stops checking at stage 3. It is still saying the drive is dirty, and still needs to be checked. I did a defrag and a disk cleanup, and suggestions?

  3. Windows 10 reverts to old version (Windows 7) after checking drive for consistency.

    Checking Disk Consistency

    1. Click on the Start menu and open the run dialog.
    2. Type "cmd" and return (without quotes)
    3. Next type "fsutil dirty query <letter of drive that chkdsk keeps checking>" (for example, C:
    4. If the returned message indicates that the volume is dirty, go to step 5
    5. Next type "chkdsk <drive letter> /f /x"

    If you get this below answer YES.
    Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another
    process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be
    checked the next time the system restarts? <Y/N>

    6. After that finishes, repeat step 3.
    7. If the volume is no longer dirty, reboot and chkdsk should not reappear
