Last week we had several blackouts while I was using windows 7 professional. After the final blackout a lot of my startup files became corrupted/ missing. When I try to log in I get error message user userint.exe was unable to start correctly and I am unable to open applications that open on startup.
And when I open applications like Adobe Reader now, I get the message box "Adobe Reader Protected Mode" "Adobe Reader cannot open in Protected Mode due to an incompatibility with your system configuration. Would you like to open Adobe Reader with Protected Mode disabled? etc.
I did a registry check and noticed that Winlogon was missing. Is upgrading to windows 10 likely to fix my registry issues?
Running scf has also disclosed corrupted windows files that are unable to be fixed. I could try to identify them and replace them with an OEM windows 7 disk, but I'm thinking that might be unnecessary if the Windows 10 update will replace these files with fresh ones.
Does anyone know?
