    Thanks for your update. Sorry to hear you are still having some problems. Maybe you could start a new thread about your freeze ups and your other problems.
    Here's a good link about freeze ups!Windows freezes or stops responding.
    PS Good advise about having back ups. I always have a current back up image on a external drive.
    Thats a good advice indeed. Do you do a full backup of the c: drive with windows installed or just the important files?

    Cheers

    Hi friend! You just gave me the chance to get on my stump and preach. If you want to be a fearless PC user, the best thing you will ever do, is learn to use a 3rd party image program like Macrium Reflect. I do a full back up of my OS just before MS puts out their Patch Tuesday. I have a 1TB seagate external drive that is used for this. I keep about 6 or 8 full back up images on it. I don't like incremental or differential. IHHO, it's to easy for them to get corrupted. I save the oldest and the newest images, and delete the ones in between. I can not count how many times Macrium Reflect has saved me. I'm not as active with trying new stuff, as I use to be; and so Macrium doesn't get used as much, but knowing I have a image that will restore exactly like the day is was created is priceless. I could go on for ever about how everyone should learn how to use a 3rd party image program. The image program in W10 is better then nothing, but it can;t compare to Macrium IMHO.
    Thank you for your reply friend. I would love to teach a school here on Windows Central on how to use a 3rd party image program. There are several free programs on the web and there is no reason why everyone shouldn't be learning how. Take some time learning how to create a back up image instead of playing war games all day. LMAO!
    Thanks friend! You are appreciated!

    I use Acronis for full backup periodically and both Acronis and the Windows back up functioin on the micro sd for files. Even so it is not so easy to reinstall everything.

    Hi Thanks for your reply. I use Macrium Reflect and it's very easy to restore my OS. When I restart my PC, I'm given two options. Start Windows 10 or Start Macrium Reflect System Recovery. I have been using Macrium for several years. Macrium will restore my PC back exactly like it was the day I created the image in less then a hour!

    Thank you my friend for giving me the opportunity to preach what I love to preach about. Creating a back up image of your OS regularly and you will be fearless like me. I'm working on a thread here on the forum about this subject. Hoping it gets some attention, but it probably won't! If I could get one person to learn a 3rd party back up program,it would make my day!
    Cheers to you friend!
