    While I was cleaning my PC using CCleaner, I decided to delete windows.old folder. After cleaning process finished, programs never launch when I open it. I restarted the windows but it won't boot and give STOP CODE error.

    Here is my Laptop Specification:

    Model: Lenovo z570
    CPU: intel i7-2670qm
    GPU: NVIDIA Geforce gt 540m
    RAM: 8GB
    OS: Dual boot Ubuntu(main boot loader) & Windows 10

    And here is the solutions I tried and none of them worked:

    1- Startup Repair (took about 30-45 min and gives error)
    2- Reset This PC (exit at 36% with Undoing Changes message)
    3- Using Command Prompt
    chkdsk c: /r /x & sfc /scannow
    bootrec /fixmbr , bootrec /fixboot , bootrec /scanos , bootrec /rebuildbcd and it outputs: "Total identified windows installation: 0"
    How to solve this problem?
    Thanks in advance.

    Same thing happened to me a few days ago when I deleted the Windows.old folder through CCleaner. I wasn't able to boot it and it would restart every time. I then ended up restoring my laptop to 2 days ago and it started working again.

    Simple solution, don't use CCleaner, it'll do more harm than good to your PC. Do this: AAutomate Enhanced Disk Cleanup Tool operation in Windows 10/8/7

    The answer is to use the built in Disk Cleanup utility instead.

    These third party programs do not have an intimate understanding of the OS like MS does. Disk Cleanup would have done the same without any issues. I can't believe people let this app muck around in the registry too.
