Windows 10 Support and Solutions

Windows 10 problems and issues

Before you commence, make sure that your Windows 10 is updated with the latest updates. Having done that, create a system restore point and move on.

1] Repair corrupted Windows 10 system files

Some of your files could have got corrupted as a result of which Window 10 is not working the way it should.

From the WinX Menu, open an run Command Prompt (Admin), type the following and hit Enter to run the System File Checker.

sfc /scannow

This will scan your PC and replace your corrupted system files with good one’s. Restart after the scan is over.

2] Repair corrupted Windows system image

Run the DISM tool to repair a possibly corrupted system image. To repair Windows Image, open an elevated command prompt, type the following and hit Enter.

Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

Restart after the scan is over and see if it helped.

3] Re-register the Windows Store and apps 

Search for ‘PowerShell’ in taskbar search, select Windows PowerShell from the results, right click on it and choose Run as administrator. This will run PowerShell as administrator.

NOTE: After the November Update, if you use this method  to fix this problem using the Appx PowerShell cmdlet, it may break your Windows Store apps. So we recommend that you do not try it now.

Now type the following and hit Enter.

Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

This will re-register Windows Store Apps.

4] Reset Windows Store Cache

Open Command Prompt as administrator, type WSReset.exet and hit Enter. This will clear and reset the Windows Store Cache.

NOTE: Windows 10 users may want to download FixWin10 for Windows 10. It automates these fixes and lets you resolve issues in a click!
