    It is my understanding that reset puts the machine software back to the way it was out of the box. Refresh saves Apps but not Desktop Programs. Unless you have an issue that will only be fixed that way I would not use either.

    They are pretty much optios for a system that is hosed and cannot be fixed by stuff like sfc /scannow or updating drivers or reloading the registry from a backup.

    What is the issue that makes you want to go with these options?

    Is any anti-virus running on the system while this is happening?

    I think on one of the pages where I got a hit for that error number, the person said uninstalling Avast allowed it to complete. I think it is worth a try. Especially trying to do system stuff AV gets in the way. The other things I found all referred to installing .NET framework. I suppose it could be either but the first things I do when trying to get my system going are turn off AV and Firewalls.

    Once you are up and running if you want to reactivate that's up to you.

    The fellow with the antivirus uninstalled it completely before things started to change. This page sounds closest to what you were doing.

    The same thing happened to me a month ago. This fixed it, uninstalling a patch which is related to pending Windows 10 system diagnostics.Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth ran fine and next scannow came back clean again -

    You're getting error 0x800f0906 because you have KB3022345 installed. Uninstall it by going to Programs and Features in Control Panel and then click the link to "View installed updates". In the Search box top right, copy/paste (or type) KB3022345 and when it appears in the list, right click it and choose Uninstall.

    See these two articles for more info on the subject: Microsoft confirms patch KB3022345 breaks SFC /scannow
