Download then run the Windows All in One Repair (free)  from here, disregard the malware guidance but follow the other steps to the letter and in particular ensuring that you first create a new restore point and perform a proper Windows clean boot before running the repair, details for the clean boot here.

Thank you for being so understanding, it is appreciated  :thumbsup:

 

The truth is that a refresh may not even resolve the issue but it is the next best thing to a clean installation of Windows 10 + it does not affect your personal data, you may need to reinstall some apps but that is easy as a file of any apps that need to be reinstalled is created for you, see mine attached that was created when I had to do a refresh.

 

Is this a brand name computer such as Dell or HP etc, reason that I ask is that many people with brand name computers have had problems after upgrading to Windows 10 and the only two ways to put things right was either reverting back to the previous OS or doing a clean install of Windows 10.
