Hi, I can't boot into Windows 10. It shuts itself down after giving a blue screen error code "Critical process died". I am informed "We will restart for you after checks are performed". Restarts and ends up with same message and restart (sometimes with disk checking) or in Recovery Environment with many options, such as reset, system restore and safe mode, none of which work despite repeated attempts. I thought I had a system image on a partition of my C drive, but on trying the option to restore from that, I was informed that "no System image was found on this computer". The problem started shortly after windows had informed me that "Updates have been successfully installed".
I am stymied as to how to proceed now, as I am unable to run scans (sfc, etc.) from command prompt as suggested by reading I have done related to this (common?) problem. I am currently operating minimally thanks to Hirens Boot CD installed on a USB drive. My system is still under warranty and I have the option of dropping it at a repair facility, but that would put me down for about 2 weeks. I was hoping that there is a reasonably simple fix that would obviate the need for that.
Thanks for any advice you can give me.
