    Problems since W10 Install

    Since the W10 upgrade I have experienced problems.

    Firstly in any browser I am unable to use Ctrl c, Ctrl v or any other command that starts with Ctrl. When I press Ctrl the browser immediately zooms to maximum size and I am unable to reduce the magnification at all.

    Secondly whenever I use a drop down menu, the menu appears for a split second, then disappears. I am therefore unable to use drop down menus. This happens with all applications.

    Thirdly, when I try to use a form filling drop down choice, for example year of birth or nationality, as soon as I scroll down, it scrolls back to the top which means I am unable to make a choice.

    These problems have all started since the W10 install. I have run sfc /scannow, chkdsk and anti-malware apps and all report no problems. I have no W10 disc or iso, and do not under any circumstances want to put my data at risk.

    Any advice will be gratefully received.

  2. Windows 10 Installation Problems

    After up grading to Win 10, my screen started to blink and the lap top was frozen in this blinking mode. After restarting computer many times, it is stuck in the Win 10 load process with the circle of dots spinning around and around while the load process
    goes no where. I have tested all hardware and it is OK. I tried the Win 10 fix and it still is in the same mode where the dots spin around and around, but operating system does not load and start up

    I have a 64 bit HP Lap Top that was running Win 8.1 without any problems before trying to load Win 10.

  3. Go back to free w10 version from w10 pro


    Im going to explain my problem since de begining:

    I had problems with my w10 version that I get from the update from w8.1, so I decided to restore my w10. During the process it show me an error so I freaked out and decided to reinstall w10. So I get the tool to do so from another pc, and it show me 2 options:
    install w10 home or install w10 pro. First I install w10 home, since I thought my w10 version was the most basic, but it says that I need to purchase a license. So I decided to try the other version. Now I have the same problem, and no money to purchase a
    license. My question is: Given that I don't have my product key from w8.1 and I don't know my previous key product for w10 (The version that was free), is there any way to go back to the free version of w10? and if not, What is going to happen to my pc if
    I don't activate my w10 pro version?

    thank you for all the help you can get me

    Problems since W10 Install

    Hi m800afc You could try doing a repair install, by downloading the correct version of Windows 10 that you have installed now.
    Doing the repair install will not remove any of your programs, or personal files. Here is a tutorial on how.

    Here is a link to get your Windows iso file, use Option 1 here.

    Historically, these types of problems seem to run about 50/50 whether it is a problem with the Windows install itself or a problem with the user's account. OldMike65's solution will usually fix problems with the Windows install itself. The fix if the problem is with the user's account is simply to create a new local user account, change it to an administrator account, log into it and see if the problem is fixed or carries over. I would suggest creating a new user account for troubleshooting first only since that takes a lot less time and effort. If the problem does not exist in the new account, then doing a repair of the Windows install itself will likely not fix the problem in the original user's account.
