Hi, I am unable to boot my computer. I get to the menu where you can troubleshoot problems (e.g. refresh PC, reset your PC, open cmd window, etc.). I have tried refreshing and resetting multiple times, but it says there is a problem and changes were undone. I have tried many things including following these instructions to no avail:
"Rename the System and Software registry hives to System.001 and Software.001 by using the following commands:
ren system system.001
ren software software.001"
I have an ASUS Q550LF laptop running Windows 10.
I started having this problem after I tried a fix for my disk usage running at 100% for long periods of time after startup. This is what I did, which then led to the booting problem after attempting to restart:
"After trying stopping and disabling WSearch, superfetch and BIT all worked temporarily. the real culprit seemed to be the pagefile settings. go to control panel/system and security/system/advanced system settings under performance click settings, advanced tab click change, set min to 1024 x your ram to convert to MB and set max to 2 x the min. click set, OK and apply. requires a restart. Stopped my 100% disk usage and windows now loads faster hope this helps."
Any ideas or solutions?
