  1. Windows 10 doesn't respect my decision to remove/unlink my phone


    I once connected my new Samsung S9 to Windows 10 as a test, and decided I didn't like it. So I:


    After all this, I started the "Your Phone" app as a test -> https://i.imgur.com/Z2LlyWH.png

    So, it looks like it's gone, right? Nope. My phone is now magically connected to Windows 10 again (showing in the "Your Phone" app), and keeps doing this despite me repeating the steps above. How do I really stop it connecting? Why won't Microsoft obey my wishes? I do NOT want my phone having anything to do with Windows. Thanks.

  2. Unlink an old android phone from my pc

    I go thru the suggested steps: Start - Settings - Phone - Unlink this PC.

    When I first open the "your phone" screen the old phone is listed. Not sure if the phone listed is suppose to be selectable or not, but my is not. When I select "Unlink this PC" the phone listed is removed. When I select "Add Phone" the old phone still
    shows. I have removed the old phone from my Microsoft Account. I have rebooted after unlink this pc but I still cannot remove my old phone.

    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:

    Does it mean my HDD is useless?

    Thanks for your answer, ken!
    I deleted all my data. I had have it backed up.

    I did a clean installation using the windows media creation tool (usb option).

    No, I didn`t. I thought a clean installation would solve the problem.

    After posting my previous message, I did it.

    After chkdsk, I close cmd and tried to boot and the laptop just turned it off. This morning I`ve restarted it and automatically windows did a repair. Windows has booted and it seems that the repair tool has removed chrome and acrobat pdf reader (the only two programs I had installed after reinstalling windows).

    Now Windows is installing updates and restarting my lapop, I`m kind of frightened. I don`t want it to happen again. Anyhow, I want to know what has brought the issue

    I`ve been looking for information about the error code at the end of the picture and I didn`t get anywhere.
