    For heck of it, run these both, let me know how it goes.Your welcome !

    From Admin command prompt copy and paste, then press enter

    sfc /scannow

    Same command prompt copy and paste this, press enter, let it finish

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    I got the command prompt open (something I haven't done since windows 7), but it says when I try to run it I need to be running a 'console session' to use the sfc thing. I've never heard of this, I only have the know how to effectively navigate PCs (Why I was able to open up Task Manager with black screen :P). How do I run a console session?


    NVM i think i found it

    O.k. makes me wonder how this laptop all of a sudden fixed itself, chances something may still be up, let's just see how SFC shows first.

    CBS.log ? What about DISM did you reboot also ? Could be false positive from certain updates, post log here we can look at it. find it in C:\windows\logs\cbs
