Anyone know about this? It was causing problems with mother's computer,so she uninstalled it- cut her some slack -she is 86- I did some brief reading on it- but am not sure if it is a necessary part of Windows.Don't ask me how she got to it-but she did. The article i read said that it had something to do with hogging memory resources-do I need to reinstall it ,or can I leave it as is.?

Can you link the article where you read about "Windows Power Shell Experience"?

Powershell is a feature of Windows, mainly used by advanced user and Sysadmins.

I doubt your mom needs it to be honest, and I doubt you do.

Well- I don't know what is going on, but the Windows Start button no longer works correctly- Search is unresponsive- you can only get options by right-clicking the start button- i.e shut down,restart etc. the familiar GUI windows interface is gone- so i am running a scan with malwarebytes and will post the results- I probably should move this topic to a different forum- also Metro desktop is gone- no tiles-nothing except the old Win 7 interface. Should i run a system file check?

I ran sfc/scannow and have the CBS Log- definitely corrupted files, but Windows was unable to repair them. Can i post the log here- or would that help?

The CBS.log is often too big to be attached on forums. You have to ask it on a Cloud service like Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive and post the download URL for it here.

You can run a "Repair Install" from the Windows 10 .iso, yes. Simply mount it, access it and run setup.exe then pick the Upgrade option and you'll be in business.

Aura - i was burning the .ISO and my DVD burner finally died- I use it a lot! So- had to go to Frys and get a new one- only about 22 bucks for a generic burner,so got that installed and DVD burned.So -will get to Mom's computer tomorrow- will let you know what happens- Eset online Scanner found 2 viruses and 19 PUPs. I can't imagine what would wipe out the whole Win 10 interface----

First time I hear of a DVD burner dying, these things looks like they can live on forever.

Are you being sarcastic? I have had several DVD burners die in my day.

Not being sarcastic at all. It's really the first time that I hear someone saying that a DVD burner died on him. Usually, people change it for compatibility, or because a piece is broke, not because it completely stops working.
