Can you open either a Powershell (Admin) or a Command Prompt (Admin) and enter these cmds -

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

sfc /scannow

Let me know if they report anything untoward.

Enter exit to close the cmd window then try the repair program again.

Can you also let me know the reason why you needed to run the repair program.

dism: restore operation successful
sfc: no integrity violations

Will now run repair program again.

Reason for running program is that the computer (ASUS Rock) is possibly not well equipped for supporting Windows 10 and is very slow. I want to make sure that this slowness is not caused by a damaged Windows.

Was it slow before you upgraded to Win 10 ?

One thing that can affect performance is an excess of Start up programs.

Right click on the taskbar and select Task Manager.

Click on Start-up where you will see the list of programs that start on boot and how much impact they will have.

I only have Cortana, Realtek Audio and Windows Security notification enabled.

Alternatively you could check to see if performance has improved by performing a clean boot.

Under Start-up Disable all items - Apply - OK then go start and type msconfig then press enter when System Configuration comes up.

Under Services check the box to Hide all Microsoft services - Disable all - Apply - OK and reboot.

To restore the Services, go back into msconfig and under General click on the Normal startup button - Apply - OK and reboot.

I've upgraded two Toshiba Win 7 laptops to Win 10.

One has an Intel 1.5 GHz CPU and the other has an AMD 1.3 GHz CPU.

The Intel one performs much better than the slower AMD one, but is still usable.

Each have 8GB RAM installed.

The PC finally gave up after all my attempts and locked down completely. No amount of effort got any response so I did a complete reset.
Fortunately, it is a reserve machine with very little content, mostly backups from the main PC.
Now I have a clean, fresh Windows 10 which does not need any "tweaking" for a while.
Thanks for your help, Tom.

A handy tool to have for when a machine won't boot up is a Hiren's Boot Disk.

https://www.techspot.com/downloads/6966-hirens-bootcd.html

I've successfully used 15.2 to get one of my Win 10 laptops back up and then perform those dism cmds.

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

If using an USB, I've found it best to insert it before downloading the creation tool where it will then auto create a bootable USB.

With install media you can perform a repair install which doesn't affect personal stuff or installed programs.

With the machine booted up, open Windows/File Explorer - This PC - insert the media and double click on its drive.

This will start the process when using a DVD but will open to its files when using an USB where you would then double click on setup Application.

This takes 3 - 4hrs on one of my machines.
