Are U keeping software up to date.  Thanks
System Configuration data: Asus ProArt Z690 Creator WiFi; Asus RTX 3080; Be quiet Dark Power Pro 12 (1200w); Trident Z5 DDR5-5600 16GBx4; Intel i9-12900KF; Asus Ryujin II AIO cooler; Sabrent NVMe M.2 Rocket 4.0 2TB drive (os); Corsair NVMe M.2 Gen3x4 8TB drive (user); Win11Pro (note: os and os-user files were originally installed on two different drives (per Kari's tutorial) for reasons related to the content creation purpose for this computer). There are additional drives on this computer but it seems unnecessary to mention them as they are unlikely to be germane to the current problem.

I have been working with my newly (and finally) built DAVW (re)installing the plethora of content related programs, vsts, samples, etc. after having stress tested it for several days initially. Everything was running just fine until sometime overnight last Thursday. I left the computer busy downloading another installment of needed programs only to return to find the download apps were running but nothing whatever was actually downloading. Yet, I had internet connectivity and was able to download several small files and transfer files to/from the NAS. I decided a reboot was in order and closed everything and attempted to do so. Then I got the dreaded kmode error. No specific file mentioned Worse, it is looping such that I simply cannot actually get to Windows at all, not even safe mode works. I can get a command prompt window via the automatic repair functions. I do not have any reason to believe there are any hardware issues causing the problem and I can access the UEFI.

I extensively researched this via the internet (or, at least, attempted to do so). Most write-ups suggest this is a very easy problem to solve but they seem to assume that one can get to a working version of Windows. That doesn't apply here since I seem to be looping through the error-diagnosis-automated repair without being able to start Windows itself. I can only access the command prompt window and, of all the various 'sure-fire' fixes offered, none of them works as specified. I'm not an inexperienced but neither am I an expert so my ability to navigate and execute programs through the command prompt is a bit dodgy. If I am reading things right, the worst case scenario is having to reinstall the OS (I purchased a copy for this box so I have the original USB from MS) but I DO NOT want to lose the six weeks of downloading/installing (and I'm only about 25% into the reinstall of music/video apps) if I can possibly help it. Worse, I don't know if a 'safe' (read: nondestructive) OS reinstall can be done with the divided os/user drives configuration I prefer.

I am hoping there are a simple set of command prompt instructions that can be implemented so I can get Windows working and proceed to the discovery of what caused the problem in the first place. If someone can point me to know working solutions to this problem and/or walk me through them, I would appreciate it.
Feedback & Suggestions / Lifetime license?

I am happy to support, It look like I have a lifetime license on this PC, this is no longer offered?

Would be nice to see something a bit better than $25 a year. ($24.99 lol)
I went to disable my network in order to install a driver without interference from Windows update, but I was shocked to find a ton of them listed. I tried to uninstall them all, but they keep coming back. I also did a reset of all network adapters. This is on Windows 11 and I'm losing my mind here.

Weird, I ran into the exact same problem last night, but not from running the AIO repair programs. I could not boot to safe mode with networking to save my life.

I managed to get the passwords back thanks to Sandboxie- pure luck. There were some credentials in it that were able to decode the passwords with WebBrowserPassView v2.12... 284 passwords are back. I still don't know what file Im missing on the system that is inside Sandboxie

1. I managed to find file with the login/password data in:
C:\Users\XXXXXXX\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Edge\User Data\Default\Login Data

2. I tried to extract it with Nirsoft WebpassViewer:
[URL unfurl="true"][/URL]

3. It showed logins and websites but no password for Edge (FF, Chrome are fine)

4. Strange thing - I started WebBrowserPassView v2.12 in a software called Sandboxie which was installed on my system to run apps more securely and in Sandboxie I got half of the passwords from Edge. I don't understand it.

5. I believe that there are some credentials missing. I tried software:
a) MadPassExt v1.00 (Microsoft Account DPAPI Password Extractor)
b) VaultPasswordView v1.11
but with no luck, I don't have this folder on my drive:

Im not sure what to do with this data anyway...

6. I think this might be the resolution but I have no idea how to do it:
[URL unfurl="true"][/URL]

Maybe "Windows Repair" could help me to get back the credentials?

I have the full version of software

I started to "play" with some services but mostly firewall rules (also local) and I've probably unlinked somehow Edge from It's credentials, there was also some update at night and I've seen Internet Explorer started without a reason. Later on I've started Edge and there were few notices that It started with a new profile (bookmarks and favourites and even history was still there) but ALL MY PASSWORDS ARE GONE.

I was able to go back to recovery point but it didn't help :cry:

I think this might be related somehow to Internet Explorer old services/credentials or Maybe I've locked time/date updates so the System couldn't get certificates or credentials and cleared my passwords? Some of them stayed in the profile folder but most are gone. Please help! :shy::shy: :shy:
Chinese characters in US Repair Parse Points results.

What's this?

I rebooted and re-ran Tweaking Windows repair and re-ran check reparse points ( and chkDsk, and DISM ), and "Problems Found?: No", but the tab saying [ (Information ) All Found reparse Points On System ] has these Chinese characters shown below ( I included a prior OK line and an OK line after ).

I searched the disk for such characters and found none.
