Windows 10 and stuff
« on: August 11, 2015, 10:10:02 pm »
'Well hello there my fellow internet users,

As some of you may have noticed I haven't been online at all recently, others might be wondering who I am at this point.
But that is a story for another time.
I have recently decided to do my free upgrade to windows 10, this update has however caused a rather big issue, not of my
programs wich require Jave work (e.g minecraft). I will usually recieve a java runtime error after about 3 seconds.
Now this appears to be part of a bigger issue, none of the apps in the start menu work, I can click on them but nothing happens.
for instance word, excel, store etc.. not even the settings menu. Now I have been searching on the internet to solutions, but as of yet
I have been unable to find any and/or the proposed solutions did not work. Now I do realise most of you don't have any tecnical backgrounds but I figure I did try and ask here aswell

Other programs like steam do work, and all the games function normally. And since I am unable to open the settings menu I am unable to recover to windows 7, or alteast I haven't found a way to do so.
I hope some of you might have some usefull information regarding this problem. So thanks in advacne

TL;DR
-Java crash in windows 10
-None of the apps work
-Nothing works really...wich is a shame to say the least

I recommand retuning to windows 7/8, uninstalling any programs that could have made issues and upgrading again

My upgrade to windows 10 didn't seem to affect anything although I chose a clean install - deleting everything on my SSD and HDD. You should revert to windows 7/8 and try backing up files either on cloud, e.g. Google Drive or by external storage.

I have tried returning to windows 7 but I cannot enter the settings menu.
I get an error telling me it is unable to excute the given command. The second error is telling me it is unable to locate element.

A complete reinstall seemed to have fixed all of the issues, thanks for the help. :)

That's what I was going to do, however I've got no where to store my backed up files, so until I get something sorted out regarding this, I shall give it a go :D
