  2. Error: "Windows couldn't complete the requested changes", "The system cant find the file specified" on Windows 10

    Recently I purchased a game called rust. I have received an error saying

    "Windows couldn't complete the requested changes"

    "The system cant find the file specified"

    I already tried this:

    Let’s try simple troubleshooting steps and check if this helps in resolving the issue. I suggest you to uninstall and reinstall the
    .NET Framework 3.5. Follow the below steps.


    • Press Windows key + X and select
      Control Panel.


    • Click on Programs and features, click on
      Turn Windows features on or off on the left pane.

    • Click on .NET Framework 3.5 on the Window pop up to expand.

    • Uncheck the box and check on Ok.
    • To re-install it back check on the box and click on OK.
    Also, I suggest you to install all the Windows update.

    so please don't reply with this. (same thing popped up)

    Please help me! I would greatly appreciate it!

    "The System cannot find the file specified" on Windows 10 Login

    Hi Eric,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community. I understand that you are getting error "The System cannot find the file specified" while logging in to User Accounts.
    I will surely help you to fix this issue.



    This issue could have occurred due to these reasons:

    1. Conflict between third party applications.

    2. Corrupt System Files.



    Try the steps listed here:



    Method 1:

    I suggest you to boot the computer to Safe Mode and check if the issue occurs. If the issue do not occur in Safe Mode, I suggest you to set the computer in a clean boot state and check if it helps.



    Step 1:

    I suggest you to refer the article to boot to safe mode.

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows-10/start-your-pc-in-safe-mode



    Step 2:

    If the issue do not occur in Safe Mode, perform a clean boot and check. Setting the system in a clean boot state will help to identify if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue.

    How to perform a clean boot in Windows

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135





    Warning: After clean boot troubleshooting steps, refer to the section "How to reset the computer to start as usual after troubleshooting with clean boot" in the
    provided link to return your computer to Normal startup mode.



    Method 2:

    If the issue persists, I suggest you to
    perform SFC (System File Checker) Scan from Safe Mode and check if it helps. SFC scan will scan for corrupt system files on the computer and replace them.



    a. Click on Start button and type
    cmd in the search box.

    b. Right-click on the “cmd” option and select “Run as Administrator”.

    d. Type “sfc /scannow” without quotes and hit
    Enter.



    Note: Do not close the Command Prompt Window until the verification is 100% complete. The scan results will be shown after this process is finished.



    Hope this information helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of the issue so that we can assist you further.

    Hello Quang Tuan,

    Thank you for the update on the issue.

    This issue can occur if any of the following scenarios exist on your PC.

    • The file has been moved or deleted.
    • The file or shortcut is corrupt.
    • The file may be blocked by Windows.
    • Your antivirus software may be blocking the file.
