  1. Windows 10 updates broke my computer


    I am both a user of Linux & Windows. I have Linux installed for mainly programming on my laptop. On my desktop which is, 16GB RAM with NVIDIA GTX 1050, I use my desktop for personal reasons, such filing taxes & reading emails. I have Kaspersky Security Cloud (paid) installed on my desktop to protect against any potential threats. Nonetheless, since Windows 1903 update, my desktop's performance has gone down. For example, when I delete a folder from a particular location, it would show that it has been deleted. However, within the original location, the folder is still present. I would have to click Refresh each time to get the new status of the location. Same thing with creating a new folder or a new file, everytime I click on Create a New Folder, the folder doesn't appear with the name new folder. I have to click refresh everytime to get either make the deleted folder disappear or a new folder appear. Same with removal of USBs. When I click on remove USB device, the notification doesn't appear at all. I have to click 5 times before the safe removal notification arrives. With newer updates, I hoped the issues would be resolved , but it hasn't been resolved at all.

    Update Broke Computer Need Help!

    Windows 10 Upgrade
    According to this list, your PC isn't on Acer's approved list for Win 10. Could you check that?

    This is an older PC which came with Win 7. Have you ever clean installed Win 10 on it?

    • AMD Athlon II X2 255 Dual Core Processor
    • Windows 7 Professional
    • 2GB DDR3 RAM
    • 320GB HDD
    • DVD Rewriter
    • Integrated Graphics
    • PS.VB1E3.082

    We can only proceed step by step.

    So chkdsk and SFC /Scannow are ok. But any attempt to reset your PC or run DISM fails.

    Is this what you tried? I'm not 100% clear what the above means. Clean install or this procedure?
    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums

    If you tried this, it's possible it failed as you need (it seems) some 500Mb of unallocated space on your hard disk.

    Windows 10 update broke my computer?

    One of the possible reasons why your PC fails to boot into normal mode are broken components on the boot configuration data of your system. To isolate your concern, we suggest that you perform the following steps to trigger Safe Mode through the Windows
    Recovery Environment (WinRE) option. To do this, follow the steps below:

    • Improper shutdown process
    • Turn on your computer. When the Windows logo is visible, unplug the power source of your computer. Perform this step three times.
    • On the fourth time that you turn on your computer, just simply wait for the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) window to appear.
    • On the Choose an option screen, select Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Startup Settings and click Restart.
    • Once your computer restarts, you will see a list of options. Press the F4 key to start your computer in Safe Mode.

    We also recommend that you perform a system restore after booting in safe mode. This option takes your PC back to an earlier point in time. Restoring won’t affect your personal files, but it will remove apps, drivers, and updates installed after the restore
    point was made. To do this, follow the steps below:

    • In the Search box, type Control Panel and press Enter.
    • On the upper-right window, under View by, click Category and select Large icons.
    • Search Control Panel for Recovery.
    • Select Recovery > Open System Restore > Next.
    • Choose the restore point related to the problematic app, driver, or update, and then select Next > Finish.

    Let us know if the solution above works for you.
