pls help thanks.png

Hi /adv/,
I don't know if this is the right place to address this problem but:
I had to do a hard restart on my Lenovo laptop last December while playing Fallout 4 on Steam and once I had the computer finally reboot, all of the Windows applications would not work or slow to respond.. For example, the start menu will not work, explorer is slow to respond and occasionally crashes while opening files, and icons on the toolbar will not show up.

I have installed Windows 10 (I'm an idiot, I'm fully aware of my stupidity.) before this happened. Any ideas of problems, solutions, or any advice besides not having Windows 10? I'd like to ask before I completely fuck up my computer. Thanks.

Did you tried run the windows repair program?
>>
>>16809006
Haven't tried it yet. Looking into it right now. I should say I'm computer illiterate at the moment. I don't want to completely reset the computer and lose all of my work and collected nonsense from the internet. Thanks.

Reset your Pc to its last working restore point.

prolly gonna give this a try first, then if not I'll download windows repair program next. Hopefully this doesn't screw up my computer or lose my files. Thanks.

>>16809048
Don't download a repair program. Stick in your win 10 dvd and choose the recover options
>>
>>16809048
Restore points never delete files. Also it's the solution to your windows related problems in 9/10 cases.
>>
Try doing a virus scàn, obviously, if its clean, check your memeeory, see if it isn't full and delete stuff if it is, power off, power on, still not working, first, get a hammer, then smash it to hell :3

OP here...
>>16809064
tried restore point but no change: same problem.
>>16809064
I don't have the windows 10 dvd but still lurking on the webs for more answers. Downloading windows repair is still an option...
>>16809076
Didn't really fix my problem, yet. I didn't create a recovery point so windows restored it from the point where I started (today). Learning the hard way by being a dumbass...
>>16809087
No viruses, I don't run anything too demanding except steam games occasionally. Considering 7.62x54 as an option. :)
>>
>>16808989
You may have rebooted into Safe Mode which is the default for that in some versions of Windows.
>>
>>16809181
Nope, not in safe mode.
>>
worst case scenario just save whatever files you need then reformat your hard drive, it'll suck having to redownload your games but it's sure to get your computer going again
>>
you lack memory for your windows 10,
next
