    Hi Mia,

    The next step is to eliminate the errors on your device that's causing it to freeze or become unresponsive. To do this, we suggest that you run
    DISM to restore any corrupted or missing components on your device. For a step-by-step guide, click this

    link
    and refer to the article of ZigZag3143, skip the
    SFC
    scan and proceed to DISM.

    Let us know if you encounter any challenges along the process.
