    It's been happening for years. And, once again, my Spotlight picture is not changing. Now, understand this: I AM NON TECHNICAL, MICROSOFT. I can't try all those complicated fixes - and I shouldn't have to. Fix the problem at your end!

    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:

    Windows Edge still doesn`t work correctly

    It is now 6 weeks since I upgraded to 10 and Windows Edge still does not work correctly.

    I cannot download anything with Edge (or ie11). It includes all sites eg, Microsoft, Logitech, Epson etc.

    Dynamic links do not work and it doesn`t remember my log-in details although it asks if I want it to remember them.

    Favourites do not get put on the favourites bar although I click on that option.

    I have done all the advice I`ve been given, ie disable anti-virus etc.

    Why do they have a Windows support tile if it doesn`t work?

    Can anybody help me?
