    Windows 10 reinstall major problem


    Well I've been treading on thin ice for a couple of months. I knew 2 out of my 4 HDs had bad sectors. I backed up all my files so I only had Windows 10 and programs left on C drive (had like 1 or 2 bad sectors).

    I bought a Samsung SSD 860 EVO and tried many times to unsuccessfully clone my C drive, so I added that to "my list of things to do" and kept using my C drive.

    I forgot my V drive was the other HD with the bad sectors and I plugged it back in because I needed a file off it, and that was the end of my C drive.

    I made a USB with Media Creation Tool and did a clean install onto new Samsung SSD. I thought I had it set up to boot as UEFI but I checked and it was booting in Legacy mode and taking fore to boot up and flashing to different screens. I followed these instructions on how to cont from MBR to GPT:
    diskpart
    list disk
    select disk x (0 in my case)
    clean
    cont gpt
    exit
    exit

    It worked and my SSD booted so much quicker. I'm almost to my problem I promise. When I did the MBR to GPT consion I had a couple of errors. Those are posted here:

    So I tried to find a solution to repair WinRE. I followed these instructions:

    And now, Windows is asking me to do another installation, and this time it says my installation key is invalid. Is there a way to undo what I did?

    :)

    [Solved] Windows 10 keeps reinstalling KB3119142

    I noticed quite some time ago that KB3119142 (Update for Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Update 4 Redistributable Package) kept reinstalling itself for some reason. At least once daily. Sometimes up to several times a day. I just ignored it. It didn't seem to be doing any harm. And I figured they'd eventually fix it. Well...days turned into weeks, weeks into months, with no end to the problem in sight. It dragged on unsolved for at least the last few months. Literally reinstalling itself hundreds of(at least a hundred, felt like more) times in that period of time.

    So I finally googled it a couple days ago. And just got around to fixing it today. Which appears to have worked. And it couldn't have been easier to do. I feel so stupid to have let it intimidate me for so long.*Oops! Windows 10 reinstall major problem :oops:
    Below are links to the thread that I got the fix idea from, and the official MS support info page for KB3119142(from which I quoted the above).

    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
