So my laptop suddenly was becoming slow and was having memory issues after the most recent Windows 10 update (Thanks Microsoft). It took forever at the bootup screen and then became even slower. Eventually, it said that the disk had errors. So I went into Advanced Repair and did a chkdsk c: /f /r. This found issues fixed them. I restarted. It was still slow. Very slow.
I did a system restore to before the Windows update, but no luck. As I ran out of options, I just thought might as well reinstall Windows. I selected "reset pc" but still no luck it said can't be done. I booted from a usb that has windows and tried to downgrade to a lower version of window but still no luck. It said can't be done. I'm doing chkdsk again. I think I will have no choice but to do a clean install of Windows 10 and buy a harddrive enclosure to backup my data.
I was just wondering before I do all this, does anyone here have any ideas that I haven't already tried?
Thanks for your help
