and click on the dropdown for save as type click on all files.
If exist Results.txt Del Results.txt
Echo %date% %time% >>Results.txt
dir /s /a /b C:\*.cpl >>Results.txt2>nul
Please attach Results.txt in your next post. If just attaching the text document does not work compress it as a zip file first.
Also try Clean boot troubleshooting
