    How do I reset PC if settings doesnt work


    I installed (took 8 hours of updating 7 then installing 10) windows 10 and it worked for a few minutes but then I added some software.

    Control panel won't work, settings wont work, I cannot uninstall software, I cannot get to reset, restore is turned off (I did not turn it off), safe mode will not work.

    Sometimes it will boot sometimes not. No I cannot boot to safe mode when I get logged in, I set boot mode to safe but it did not work.

    I want to tool back to 7 but I don't have a disc. If I am forced to stay with 10 how can I reset it? There is no disc.

    God, I hate m$.

    :)

    PC starting up on its own

    After I installed windows 10 when I put my PC to sleep it starts back up on its own. I changed the settings for media sharing to allow the PC to sleep but it doesnt work, I changed the settings for network adapters to not wake up the PC and still doesnt
    work. What can I do to fix this?

    Also how do i turn media sharing off?

    Yeah, I am trying to create one now on another PC (windows 10 on a usb). Just realized that.

    I think it is some kind of driver software conflict because this did not happen on another PC. Maybe an HP driver or something.
