Just put your key in when you reinstall.

You could try installing them in Safe Mode with Networking should it be a 3rd party program that is blocking.

What error messages are you getting ?

Computer Help / Re: Registry Changes Reverting After Restart

Have you tried the Troubleshooter via Start - Settings cog - Update & Security -Troubleshoot then scroll down to and click on Bluetooth.

You may need the device plugged in for the tests.

If that still reports corruption then open a Command Prompt (Admin) and enter these cmds -

dism /online /cleanup-image /startcomponentcleanup

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

sfc /scannow

shutdown /r /t 00

Check Device Manager after the reboot.

While the first three cmds will take some time, let me know if either report anything other than successful and the last one report anything other than no integrity violations found.

If those haven't resolved the problem then you may need to perform a repair install which won't affect your personal stuff or installed programs.

See if Method 5 in this article will help with that - https://www.top-password.com/knowledge/reset-windows-10-password.html

A Reset isn't an option when you boot up with install media.

I've removed your duplicate post.

Have you installed the Media Feature pack for Win 10 N ?

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48231

When you say it hangs on repairs 5, 12 and 22, it has had to progress from one repair to another so how is it hanging if it still progresses ?

I appreciate 10hrs is a lot longer than it should take but did you perform a dism /restorehealth or a sfc /scannow before running the repair program ?

Does the machine restart okay after the reboot ?

What was the reason why you ran the repair program ?

Perhaps it may be best to run those cmds first after you have booted up with the install media.

Select Command Prompt after you have clicked on Troubleshoot and enter this cmd -

bcdedit |find "osdevice"

For clarity that is a Pipe symbol before find and is the uppercase of \

Then enter chkdsk x: /r using your partition letter instead of the x I have exampled.

You'll be able to see the full report on screen and you are looking for any KBs in bad sectors or any other error message relating to HDD failure.

If that comes back clean then enter this cmd, again using your partition letter instead of my x

dism /image :x:\ /cleanup-image /restorehealth

If that cmd runs then you can ignore the message about the Scratch directory - I've never had that cmd fail to run on my machines.

Follow that cmd with this one, using your partition letter instead of my x

sfc /scannow /offbootdir=x:\ /offwindir=x\Windows

exit (to close the cmd prompt)

Let me know if either of those cmds report anything untoward.

Remove the install media and select shut the machine down and reboot.

If it still fails to boot then reboot with the install media and try your restore points.

Have you been able to create Win 10 install media and do what I've asked ?

8
Which version of Windows you are using ?

Prior to running the repair program did you perform the pre-steps of a chkdsk /r and sfc /scannow ?

The repair program is backward compatible so it will work on all versions of Windows, although it has given problems on Vista x64 bit I believe.

Do you have Win 10 install media or access to another Windows machine to create Win 10 media ?

You can create Win 10 install media after reading the instructions at https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10

If you are using a machine that uses an UEFI BIOS then you will need to go into that to disable Secure Boot if you are using an USB for the install media.

If you are able to create the Win 10 install media, tap F12 as you switch on the affected machine (insert the USB first if using an USB) - use the cursor keys to select the mode for the media you are using, insert the DVD if using one of those and press enter.

If using a DVD then press any key when prompted to boot from CD/DVD where you may be presented with an inverse window with Windows Setup [EMS Enabled] highlighted - just press enter.

Change/confirm the keyboard and currency then click on Repair your computer on the Install screen.

You only get two options to get started again, Start-up Repair or System Restore.

I'd try the System Restore to use your restore points which will be prior to you running the repair program.

I've emailed Shane about this as yours is the second recent report about a machine not starting after running WR.

Do you know what was wrong with the machine prior to running the repair program ?

You can do this yourself or register on www.bleepingcomputer.com forum or www.sysnative.com forum and open a thread in the antimalware section.

To do it yourself, go Start - type mrt.exe and press enter when it comes up then select the Customized scan where you can include a file to be scanned.

That's okay - hope you are able to get yourself back to your normal condition soon.

14
Okay - Occasionally not being able to boot up after running the repair program occurs and the only solution usually is a clean install.

I'll pass this onto Shane with a link to your thread.

15
The Windows Repair program while saying it has created a restore point - it has been found that it doesn't physically create one.

I've passed this onto Shane but haven't had any feedback on it yet.

What did Startup Repair report ?

It's advocated that is run up to 3 times.

I thought you had already tried a chkdsk ?

At the cmd prompt using your partition letter instead of the x I have exampled, enter chkdsk x: /r

As you are in the Recovery Environment, there will be no need for a reboot to dismount the volume and you'll see the full report on the screen.

However, if there is anything wrong with the SSD then it's unlikely the sfc /scannow would complete.

16
So how were you going to give EaseUS a go ?

I assume you have tried Startup Repair from the Recovery Environment ?

At the cmd prompt enter bcdedit |find "osdevice"

For clarity that is a Pipe symbol before find and is the uppercase of \

Then using your partition letter instead of the X I have exampled, enter this cmd -

sfc /scannow /offbootdir=X:\ /offwindir=X:\Windows

17
Have you tried the program's Registry Restore utility yet ?

18
A search on that error hasn't found anything worthwhile but the missing desktop files could be related to the explorer.exe problem or the Icon repair in the program.

The program's Registry Restore may resolve that but this article looks useful to help - https://www.easeus.com/file-recovery/how-to-restore-missing-desktop-icons-and-files-in-windows-10.html

I think EaseUS is a free program.

You could also right click on the taskbar and select Task Manager then under Processes scroll down to Windows Explorer - click on it then on Restart and see if there is any improvement on your explorer.exe error message.

19
The quickest way to get to the Log is to open the repair program, click on Settings and then Log Location - Open Log Folder.

The route is Start - This PC - Windows C: - ProgramFiles(x86) -Tweaking.com - Windows Repair (All in One) - Logs

However, before you do that, open the repair program and click on Backup Tools - Restore under Registry Backup - Registry Restore then use the dropdown to select the dated back up then click on Restore Now and then see if your desktop files return.

What was the original reason why you ran the repair program ?

I was going to ask if you had tried straight after the clean install as I had done with my factory reset and found a repair install was successful.

Before you reinstall anything this time, it may be worth seeing if a repair install will also exceed.

Happy Thanksgiving - I hung on until 12.15am UK time as I couldn't keep my eyes open much longer :)

To give you an idea of the time difference for us, the time of this post for me is 09.46am which you can compare to the time stamp you see for it.

Other than the bcdedit cmds, those steps to deal with the Event Viewer error you are getting were to deal with that error and not the one you are experiencing with Safe Mode.

Check Event Viewer again after trying Safe Mode to see if it has recorded anything.

I've found this article on Google which deals with that error but create a restore point before applying the script.

https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/windows-7-error-0x80041003-events-cannot-be/fc8f5ff7-4517-4d83-a418-6bfba59751fe

As I appears to be a WMI error, you could either run the WMI repair from within the Windows Repair program or run these cmds to reset the WMI and then see if Event Viewer records anything.

winmgmt /standalonehost

winmgmt /resetrepository

regsvr32 wmisvc.dll

winmgmt /resyncperf

exit

I'll hang on until you have tried those but it is getting late here in the UK.
