I don't know how but I have been compromised like nothing I have ever seen...I cannot put my finger on it...pushing ctrl-alt-del shows for a brief second "preparing security options"... and I cannot access device manager and control panel through the settings button now, even though I used the media creation tool at a friends house to get windows 10 on a flash drive, then re-installed Windows 10 here, and it's still acting up... I have several work files on here so I need this computer to work right.

 

Chkdsk found no errors, so I do not think it is a hardware issue and the Seagate driver is updated....please I could use some assistance, and just so you know I am not above wiping the drive, but let's see what can be done first.

 

Moved from Windows 10 support

First of all, I have exhausted everything Microsoft says to do, and I previously stated that my problem persists even after a clean version of Windows 10 made with the Media Creation Tool so that link was not helpful at all. I am not a noob, I was programming DOS in the 80's, but I don't know anything about UEFI, I've been out of the loop for a few years. This seems to be embedded in the BIOS, and it's slow festering because after the clean install of 10, I was able to access control panel and a few hours later I was not. I have a screenshot of the error, but am unaware how to post a jpeg here. You guys are the best, I was hoping for more than a referral to an MS forum. I have been able to keep my computer clean based on recommendations from here for several years, but I need serious help. Just this morning, my computer clock switched to Pacific Time Zone, so something is really wrong.

This sounds more like hardware problems. A hdd failing and possibly a mother board failing.

 

The time problem seems to common. See Windows 10 time keeps changing Solved - Windows 10 Forums
