No  Windows Crashes, BSOD, and Hangs Help and Support

but something odd going on .... let me explain


Hello,


I was using an admin account for several years with no problems.  Suddenly I noticed my Defaults Programs was not populating.  None of the four areas came up.  I did some Googling and found that the only way to fix that was to create a new profile.  I activated the built-in admin account to see.  It seemed to work.  My Default Programs came back!


Knowing I should'nt use the built-in admin account all the time, I created a new admin account.  I didn't want to reinstall all the programs so I moved their "configuration" files instead.


What's happening now is when I press ( Windows_Logo_key.gif ) and the "e" key, I get a circle and arrow that changes to a circle and I have a circle and arrow on my DeskTop.  After a few minutes, everything disappears but comes back.  Then I can press ( Windows_Logo_key.gif ) and the "e" key and all works as expected.

Logging in as the built-in admin account, it does act the same but not as long.

W10, ASUS K55A, 8 GB Ram

I would like to use my original profile, if possible.

I'd suggest the following steps to attempt to restore your original profile.

 

NOTE:  Try a clean boot to see if the problem clears up that way:  http://www.thewindowsclub.com/what-is-clean-boot-state-in-windows
If it does, then different troubleshooting steps are called for.

Here's some repair/recovery/restore options (in this order).   Be sure to backup your stuff if you don't want to take the chance of losing it.:

1 - Startup Repair.  Run it 3 times, rebooting in between tries.

2 - System Restore to a point before this started happening.

3 - DISM/SFC repair (DISM doesn't work with W7, although SFC does)  - doesn't work if you're not able to boot to Windows (let me know and I'll post a way to do it from Startup Repair)
    

Then please run the following DISM commands to see if there's any problems with the system (from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt).  Press Enter after typing it:
   
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    FYI - I have repaired systems using the last command even though problems weren't found with the first 2 - so I suggest running them all.

    From this article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh824869.aspx

    You can also run sfc.exe /scannow from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt to check for further corruption. Include the CBS log (located at C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log) if you'd like to have a Windows Update expert check it (I don't check them because I can't read them)


4 - RESET using the "Keep My Files" option (W8 calls this a REFRESH; W7 and earlier doesn't have this function)

5 - Repair install of the OS (Thanks to FreeBooter!):

***************************All steps after this will wipe data from your system.  Making a current backup is strongly encouraged.************************************

6 - RESET using the "Remove Everything" option (W8 calls this a RESET; W7 and earlier doesn't have this function)

If using W7 or earlier, this can be accomplished by resetting the system by use of the recovery partition/recovery disks/recovery drive.
If you don't have them, you can usually order them from the OEM manufacturer of your system ( US points of contact here:  http://www.carrona.org/recdisc.html )

7 - Wipe and reinstall from the Recovery Partition (if so equipped)

8 - Wipe and reinstall from Recovery Media - to include deleting all partitions.
If you don't have them, you can usually order them from the OEM manufacturer of your system ( US points of contact here:  http://www.carrona.org/recdisc.html )
