    How is Windows search supposed to work? It doesn't show expected results.


    • I pressed the Windows key and typed the name of a search term, "vstplugins"
    • It automatically showed me internet search results... (cough)
    • I clicked on the folders button hidden under "more". An interesting place to put it
    • It says there are no search results for "vstplugins" even though the folder exists.

    What am I misunderstanding here? I'm assuming this is an issue of user error? I should be able to search for existing folders, no?

    Windows doesn`t start. Authomatic repair doesn`t work.

    Thanks again!!

    I`m sorry I had not noticed that the text on the picture was in spanish. It says that windows has replaced some damaged clusters in "name" file and "directory". Then, at the end "an unspecified error occurred (75736e6a726e6c2e 4f6)".

    I`ll do it and I`ll be updating this thread when I have the report.

    I ran SeaTools. These are the results:

    Does it mean my HDD is useless?

    Windows doesn`t start. Authomatic repair doesn`t work.

    Thanks for your answer, ken!
    I deleted all my data. I had have it backed up.

    I did a clean installation using the windows media creation tool (usb option).

    No, I didn`t. I thought a clean installation would solve the problem.

    After posting my previous message, I did it.

    After chkdsk, I close cmd and tried to boot and the laptop just turned it off. This morning I`ve restarted it and automatically windows did a repair. Windows has booted and it seems that the repair tool has removed chrome and acrobat pdf reader (the only two programs I had installed after reinstalling windows).

    Now Windows is installing updates and restarting my lapop, I`m kind of frightened. I don`t want it to happen again. Anyhow, I want to know what has brought the issue

    I`ve been looking for information about the error code at the end of the picture and I didn`t get anywhere.
