I’ve been having problems with Windows 10 for almost a month now. And the problems keep getting worse.
It started with the Nov upgrade that was forced upon us, which I delayed for some time, and since then I haven’t had a stable system. Just to make sure it wasn’t a hardware problem, I’ve run every test I can think of to check stability. I’m not overclocked, the memory checks to be good (both the Windows built in memory test and Memtest 86+ run overnight). The SSD checks out and I have no SMART flags showing up on any of the hard drives either. Maybe a psu issue, but I don’t think so. Temps are normal.
Going back to an image made in October eliminates the issues so far, but the damn thing is going to “upgrade” itself eventually. I’m seriously thinking of going back to my last image of Windows 8.1.
I’ve found corrupted files using sfc.exe/scannow and I cannot repair them. Yes, I’ve tried numerous methods.
Re-installing from a newly downloaded ISO from Microsoft also gives the same message from the scannow command. Yes, a completely fresh install says that it is corrupted. Updating from the ISO gives me a system that freezes constantly. Even Task Manager freezes and I am forced to reboot.
I don’t want to have to monitor updates constantly, so the best choice seems to be going back to 8.1 or 7. Unlike most, I rather liked 8.1 and never had issues with it.
Any other suggestions?
