    I can't install or uninstall any software.
    Most of the installed software are not working.
    The default windows apps are working and few of the installed games are working (Witcher 3 - don't know how) .

    Tried to reinstall Visual C++ Redistro but not working as none of exe files are opening with side by side config issue.

    can you perform a sfc scan?
    And check that there aren't any pending OS updates and app updates

    I tried to refresh. But after the update windows is not shutting down properly so the drives are locked thus I can't refresh or reset the Windows.

    Only option seems to be reinstalling Windows 8 from backup Disk and upgrading again back to Windows 10.
