  1. Sometimes when PC boots into Windows 10, I can't do anything


    A few weeks ago I've build a new computer, nothing has been reused, everything should be new.

    At first everything seemed to go very well, did the usual, installed everything I need Adobe Cloud, Autodeks programms and some games, nothing which should create any harm, disabled Windows Defender because I use ESET NOD32 and it ran like you'd expect for a couple of weeks.


    But now, about 1/3 of every boot I get this issue where Windows is taking longer than usual to load up and when it does, I can't do anything on the Desktop, can't click on anything, nothing will open up and such. Main icons are there, but the ones one the bottom taskbar are missing, I also can't open the task-manager etc. A simple reboot will do and it's like nothing has ever happened, but this isn't how I'd like to handle it for the next couple of years.


    I've found topics on the internet and forums about simmilar or the same problem, just not that it's from time to time, like in my case. Also tried out most of those said CMD and PowerShell commands.For Example



    In addition to this, when it boots up normally, more often than not, the icons of files, images, folders etc which have been deleted from the Desktop, do reappear on there, when I try to delete them it says they no longer exist, restarting the explorer does correct this issue.


    What on Gods Earth have I done to mess my Windows up this much? Don't really want to do a complete reinstall of everything after a month of use and my Internet speed is terrible aswell.


    Hopefully someone out there is kind enough to try and help me,

    thank you very much in advance!

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  3. Windows 10 USB boot

    Hi there, am not a windows 10 expert. I have a pc in the bedroom on windows 10, I messed up the bootloader trying to fix the xp on that system.

    System wont boot, trying to repair via win 10 usb installer.

    Downloaded the media creation tool to install windows 10 installer on usb stick. Not compatible with a host of usb sticks I have. Tried the usb sticks that others use, but I think they use rufus; as the media creation tool by win 10 does not detect the usb stick.

    So quick question, the win10 machine i am trying to repair the bootloader is a win7 upgraded to win10.
    If i were to use the usb win10 installer to "repair installation" does the version of the iso downloaded via the media creation tool matter?

    There is three options:
    Windows 10
    Windows 10 Home
    Windows 10 N

    Also is there a step by step instead of using rufus as I want to try an alternative method of creating a usb win 10 installer. Preferably with more compatibility.

    System is a asus sabertooth 990 (r2?) with AMD phenom X 6.

    Also is there any other software I can load onto the usb that can repair the bootloader easily?
    That would be the ideal alternative. Thanks

    Sometimes when PC boots into Windows 10, I can't do anything

    windows 10 slow boot

    I was having a slow boot issue on my Windows 7 install a little while back. It would take about 30 - 40 extra seconds to boot up for whatever reason.

    I would try following these steps, while this didn't solve my issue, it did increase Read/Write to where it should be.

    In the end, I had to reinstall my Windows 7 entirely to fix the booting issue. It was taking around 35 seconds to boot, and after the fresh install it takes about 7 seconds to boot.
