So I'm using Windows 10 Pro. I wanted to stop some services and tweak some settings in msconfig.

 

So I just hit Win + R, typed msconfig, and clicked through the tabs.

 

But on the 'Boot' tab, I noticed that instead of the operating system's name being Windows 10, it's Windows 8.1:

I don't know if this is normal or not. Is there a way to fix this?

 

It's good to mention that my previous OS before updating to 10 was 8.1 Pro.

 

By the way, I have another issue and instead of making a new thread I'll just throw it in here. I uninstalled Google Chrome because of an issue with it and wanted to re-install, but the downloaded standalone setup for 64 bit Chrome never opens. Neither does the online version of the setup. Any help?

 

I already tried to delete Chrome folders, and I can't seem to delete the registry keys for Chrome. So I can't fully clean it up.

Possibly a bug in Windows 10.

Please boot your computer with Windows Setup Media and from Windows Recovery Environment start the Command Prompt. Use Automatic Repair tool if the Automatic Repair tool cannot repair BCD store open the Command Prompt from Windows Recovery Environment and execute following command:
