I'm not so sure about it being impossible, but so far there have been many rumours of it yet no absolute proof. It would be helpful, superking75, to have more detals about what happened, precisely. Can you explain in greater detail what you were doing before you left the computer, and precisely what was showing when you got back. As for fxing this, did you ever make system images before ths problem occured? what about manufacturer's recovery media, ever make that? As it is windows 10 might still, I assume this unwelcome (though we would like more details on the exact sequence of events to see if it really did do it all entirely automatically)upgrade took place less than a month ago, have the ability to revert to your previous OS from optosn to eb found within control panel and saved files from your preous windows installation stored in a folder on the hard-drive. As long as you haven't done any kind of disk cleanup since the upgrade the folder should still be there and returning to your old OS should be possible without the need for system images.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.
My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB
