For 5 days ago I upgraded from W8.1 to W.10. The Windows is active, I didnt get any errors when I upgraded,everything went smoothly.
Ten minutes of using W10 and I noticed-despite being the only user with a admin account- I cant open some programs that worked fine the first day after the upgrade. The next day one of the programs stopped working. Thinking it was compability or some corrupted file problem I decided to reinstall it- nope,not gonna happen. I got " Windows cannot access the specified device,path or file. You may not have the appopriate permissions to access the item." error. Concidering I am the Admin it is pretty idiotic.
I did some research on google and it seemed in some cases it was Avast! that made this error to pop up so I tried to go to the avast settings to change it;first I had to enable it again (I disabled the program for a second when I was playing a game earlier) and I got " Windows cannot access the specified device,path or file. You may not have the appopriate permissions to access the item." error. Making changing within Avast before I disabled it for a short moment was completly fine!
THe tablet driver for my Wacom-tablet is not working anymore. I cant re-install it due to the " Windows cannot access the specified device,path or file. You may not have the appopriate permissions to access the item." error appearing.So I tried to test and see what would happen if I run it as admin and after 2-3min I got "
Taking ownership over the affected files/programs I cant open dont help at all; I still cant open them the error just come up.
Refresh dosent work, "roll back to 81" dosent work (if I try do it the tab just freezes for 5min before it gets unblocked while no pop-up windows or other things come up; its like I never clicked the button. And yes I have the windows.old map on the locan C: drive;I wasnt messing with it!), factory settings dosent work (I get "something happend" error if I remember correctly: I get the error every time I try it).
I have a system image file-backup of my 8.1 on a Samsung harddrive. I tried to reset it and while it recognizes the harddrive and let me select the system image file on it, later on it asks me to create a system recovery disk - why?It have a system image file why the need of another drive to read from?!
And then there is that other error; "you dont have a mail client or Outlook isnt your main mail client" error. I have already set Outlook to deafult mail client in every single web browser and within default programs several times...but this error still appears all the time when I try to open certain programs or settings in control panel (? Oo).
I tough a update would come to fix this issue,but then I found on a page that "If it’s been less than 31 days since you upgraded to Windows 10, you won’t get the November update right away; this will allow you to go back to your previous version of Windows if you choose. After the 31 days have passed, your PC will automatically download the November update."
With other words right now I think I am stuck with Windows 10 I cannot do ANYTHING on due to bugs mm, but if I wait and scream in agony for a month and then update the system (with the option of rolling back to 8.1 will be gone) I will MAYBE get a update that fix this issue(s).
Just...HELP Everything seems broken here. I have no idea how to fix it. I tried,I researched, I tried some more..NOTHING helps.
I just want to roll back to 8.1 and forget I ever had W10. I dont care if I have to delete all files (I have a system image file of my files after all) I just want a OS I have control over and not something that tells me what I can and cannot do despite the main point; I AM THE ADMIN DAMN IT!
(please excuse the random outbursts.. I am just really tired of W10 x.x)
